Pittsburgh

We walked and we ate in Pittsburgh. We walked A LOT and we ate A LOT in Pittsburgh. 

Although we stayed outside of the city at Fox Den Acres Campground, we still drove into the city to eat and walk almost every day during our stay. There was one day where we hung out in camp (and I got to sew) but otherwise, you know, we walked and we ate.

There are great bike/walking trails all along the three rivers in Pittsburgh with plenty of interesting bridges – all that have pedestrian walkways, some have historic names like “Hot Metal”, and many are painted yellow …

There is steel industry art and artifacts along the trail ….

And remnants of old railroads (with cool shadows) …

Some areas are a little gritty with old buildings and cobblestone sidewalks …


We saw Fort Pitt and the big fountain on a beautiful day …

There were all kinds of interesting things to see …

We visited the National Aviary and saw the Andean Condor (which is even bigger than the California Condor) …

We walked to the Andy Warhol Museum and took an incline railway …

There were great views at the top …

We walked through a tunnel with flowing water and colored lights ….

We walked to The Mattress Factory which is actually a very interesting modern art museum …

Where we saw three teenage girls who were only interested in the lighting to take a better selfie …

On our last day, we walked in the rain (although it was sunny earlier) … 

We did drive – to the The Church Brew Works (which is really in an old Catholic Church) and we ate some more …

Next Stop: Cuyahoga Valley National Park
