A Trip to the Park

A few days ago, a couple of friends and I spent the morning in Cedar Creek Park. This park has a great area of wild flowers throughout the growing season. I always enjoy stopping there in the spring for the Trilliums. Here are a few photos from our trip to the park.

Taking a Drive

Yesterday I decided to take a drive in the mountains near where I live. I’m sure to most they are only foothills, but to us they are our mountains. A little back story to my post.

Years ago on a dirt bike ride we visited a abandon cemetery on an old dirt road in the mountains. I can remember the majority of those buried there had died the same year. I can also remember a swimming hole in the stream next to the cemetery. Now fast forward to about 10 years ago I started looking for this cemetery again. Well I’m still looking.

Every now and then I take a drive find another old back road that I haven’t tried yet and see if I can find that cemetery and swimming hole. And sad to say yesterday was not the day. But, I had a great time exploring yet another old dirt road.

A quick stop in the South Side of Pittsburgh

As always the South Side of Pittsburgh proved to be interesting. And this past weekend was no exception. A group of photographers from the Westmoreland Photographers Society spent the afternoon walking the street and photographing anything and everything. I found these two motorcycle groups to be interesting.

Flowers from Phipps

After a recent trip to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens I wanted to share some of my favorite flowers and cactus.

Spring at Phipps Conservatory

A recent trip to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens with the Westmoreland Photographers Society brought spring to life. And what flower makes you think of spring? A tulip of course.
