Ah, the popular view of the Susquehanna River – and York County across the waterway – from Chickies Rock. This is looking upstream. Chickies Rock is name after the American Indian word Chiquesalunga meaning “place of the crayfish.” The park surrounding it is well watered – a mecca for crayfish – with the Susquehanna River and Chiques and Donegal creeks running through its 400-plus acres. This York, Pa., Daily Record photo comes from story: Spend a day down by the river in Wrightsville, Marietta and Columbia. This FlipSidePa.com story takes a different view on the river towns: ‘Nestled along the Susquehanna River, the towns of Marietta, Wrightsville and Columbia represent themselves as “historic” more than they use the word “fun.” But they could and should.’ Also of interest: When you enjoy this view from Chickies Rock, how how high above the Susquehanna are you?

Roy Flinchbaugh is a longtime reader of my history stuff and an observer of the York scene. I always read his emails with a sense of discovery.
