I picked up US-40 at Uniontown and followed it into Ohio. Visited two Madonna of the Trail monuments and crossed the Wheeling Suspension Bridge.

I have seen signs and brochures for Johnstown, site of a devastating flood in 1889. I have even driven through the edge of the town but have yet to visit the park and museum there. As it has been for a couple of others, Williamsport, PA, is the starting point of this trip. It's about 50 miles from Centralia, a town that has been cooking atop a coal fire since 1962. The trip will form around this pair of disaster sites. I thought of making it a trio by adding Three Mile Island but learned that the visitor's center there has been permanently closed.
