Hey, all! We're starting the second leg of our trip today - we've spent the last week in the Allegheny region of Pennsylvania, and I must say it was quite nice. Temperatures in the high 60s to low 70s during the day, 50s at night, low, low humidity, and scenic drives all around!
We checked out Kinzua Dam, Kinzua Bridge State Park, Jake's Rocks, Warren, Bradford, Grand Canyon of PA, hiked the Tracy Ridge trail, drove on the Longhouse Scenic Byway, and trekked out to Pittsburgh (where a security guard told us to stop taking pictures of PPG Place) <--besides that, it is a really nice city, very accessible and not too big. I went under the "Timpani" bridge, but I didn't see any timber supports there - it looks like the bridges have been undergoing repairs as of late.
Well, that's all for now. I'm on a limited access wireless plan so I can't indulge right now.
Just a couple of quick notes, though: US-219 in Bradford is one of the worst roads I have ever been on. Concrete slabs with holes everywhere, a very poor shoulder, etc, especially on the Northbound side. But, US-219 South of Bradford is a very enjoyable ride, the only traffic I encountered was a car from CT that I was behind for about 1 1/2 hours.
That's all for now!
