The internet truly is amazing. After remembering catching salamanders at a lake called Bear Wallow when I was a kid (see previous post), I did a search. There really is a lake in Pennsylvania called Bear Wallow, and some kind soul actually posted a photo of it. The vegetation is more grown up than I remember (aren't we all) but this is otherwise exactly what I remember. I'm amazed. The bears, I always believed, lived up the gravel road in the distance.
