Some of you already know others may not but on March 1 of this year I had a heart attack. So I’ve been kinda taking it easy lately gaining my strength and yesterday I finally took a short hike in Ohiopyle State Park. For those of you familiar with the area I crossed the bridge above Cucumber Falls and then took a lesser used trail and made my way down to the Youghiogheny River. Not a far walk but definitely a steep hill to climb back up. After that trek I also made my way down into Cucumber Falls and out to the river. All in all it was a nice trek with my camera and backpack along for the walk as well.
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.
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.
Sometimes I just enjoy taking a ride through the country side. And you never know what you might come across on one of those rides. On this particular ride deep in the woods on a small road I came across an interesting structure that I’m assuming is a spring of some sort. Maybe you can tell me what it is?
Directions to the place. Take the dirt road, which will turn into a cow path across the mountain. When you reach the middle of nowhere go another 3 miles and look for the flags on the fence. You have arrived at your destination. The interesting things you find while out enjoying a ride through the mountains. #sundaydrive #2eightphotgraphy #americanflag
Just enjoying the view of winter.
Well I’m a little late for the post but here is a view of a snow storm from the lookout above Ohiopyle State Park.
