Meadowcroft Rockshelter

We recently found out that the oldest documented form of civilization in North America (from 16,000 years ago!) is only about 30 minutes from our house, so we went over to check it out.  It was incredible and held ALL of our interest for several hours.  Highly recommend it to anyone.  Lots of pictures, but it was a long day (Bradley & Daddy even snuck out to a Wild Things baseball game afterwards).
