Pittsburgh

Last week, Matt had a hearing in Pittsburgh, so Grace and I drove out with him.  His hearing was actually in Mars, PA.  We thought it was an interesting name.  Nearby was the city of Cranberry and the city of Moon.  We got in on Sunday night and after his hearing Monday, we headed into Pittsburgh to check it out.  None of us had been there before.

This is a good view of the three rivers that run through Pittsburgh.  The Ohio meets the Allegheny River on the left and the Monongahela River on the right.  It was raining that day, so not the clearest view.
A view of the city.  
The Duquesne Incline opened in 1877 to carry cargo up and down Mount Washington and later to transport residents of the Mount to and from Pittsburgh.  Two original cable cars are still used.  The incline was originally steam powered.

My fried, Chelsey happened to have a conference for work Monday through Friday.  We met up with her Friday night and went out to dinner and dessert.  It was so fun to see her!  My first friend to visit PA!  Who's next?
