Have you visited Gobbler’s Knob or met all the groundhogs in Punxsutawney? Madison’s nose work trial cancelled because of an ice storm and we were already in Pennsylvania, so we went to see Phil, the famous groundhog. The town has thirty two statues and then there is Gobbler’s Knob where Phil comes out every year on February second.
Punxy as the locals call it is a cute old town that is full of groundhog. We would never go there around Groundhog Day as it would be nuts!
Our timing was perfect as it was cold and snowy, no tourists around. We could pose anywhere with any groundhog without interruption. Madison started off with this money bags groundhog.
Nelson also found a groundhog at a bank, but his was talking about a famous saying. It looks like Nelson is hungry for some cash!
I found a hardware groundhog. Calling all handymen out there, this one is for you!
Madison also came across the Wendy’s groundhog. She is a cutie, I mean the groundhog.
This is the only one we saw the back of and she sure does have a cute behind 🙂
My next groundhog had a broken paw. I guess he is advertising for a medical place.
Last but not least Nelson met the gardener groundhog.
Once we had found a few groundhogs to pose with, we headed up the hill to Gobbler’s Knob. This is the actual entrance people will use on Groundhog Day.
We were the only folks at the site that day. They were super friendly, and dog friendly as well. We could go to any of the spots and it was not a problem. It was all icy, though, so Mom could only take us one at a time. She didn’t want us to pull and hurt her.
Behind me is where the TV thing takes place every year. It is pretty cool to see it for real.
Look at me! I am up on stage! Mom says we are going to watch Phil in February because we can say we have stood where Phil forecasts the weather every year! The plan was for all three of us to be on stage for a photo, but with the ice, we would have to get up there one at a time and it is a downhill walk of about one hundred fifty yards, so Mom said I could just do it alone.
In case you don’t know what Groundhog Day is, this sign gives you the full scoop.
Madison found another place for a photo with a pretty cool metal groundhog.
We had a great time except for the ice. If you are in the area, we recommend visiting the town and Gobbler’s Knob. After our little groundhog stops, it was back in the car and off to my trial the next day. Road trips can be so much fun and so interesting too, that is why they make us so happy!
My GBGV Life is happy, so we’re joining Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday!
