Man, I definitely need to get out of town more often. I was way to excited about this day trip outside of Pittsburgh. We didn’t even go very far, just to Johnstown PA; a journey of 90 minutes or so. It’s amazing how far you can go in a car in 90 minutes. It takes me that long in bus travel to go from my Larryville neighborhood to my mother’s house on the Northside. I couldn’t possibly tell you what route we took, it was some number or other. It was beautiful to see all those rolling hills of misted trees –
Our journey ended in Johnstown, where we attended an exhibit at VOMA and to check out the Ethnic Festival. (More on these events; stay tuned) I played a bit with my camera on the homeward bound trip, and my travel companion was kind enough to indulge me by stopping at a scenic overlook. The Conemaugh Gap, deepest gap east of the Mississippi!
The Overlook was great, tended by the loving hands of the community. It was well maintained, with a guestbook, a variety of plantings, a picnic table, and a birdhouse. Sweet little park, it was a nice place to stop and get some pictures. The slideshow has notes on the photos, enjoy the travelogue.
