2-day jaunt to Pittsburgh and back

Postby GMUSL » Thu Jun 12, 2008 5:47 pm

I just completed a 2-day trip to Pittsburgh (took in a Nats game at glorious PNC park, my favorite ballpark in the world -- alas, the Nats lost).

Took great Maryland back roads to Gettysburg, then US 30 from Gettysburg to Pittsburgh -- a very nice mountanous road without much traffic at all. Made a stop at the very moving, spontaneous, Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville (west of Bedford). This will become an official National Park, and will I'm sure be beautiful, quite soon, but catch this spontaneous display before they put up the official one.

Here are a few pix. The flag (where the plane hit the ground) is in the pastoral photo -- look hard.

I go by there quite often. Never stopped. This reminds me why I should.

Funny, I took all of the same pics when me, Kitty and Walt headed out that way on not such a weather perfect day. We went 2 Oktoberfests ago.
It was pretty dang cold and a little rainy. Kitty sporting one of my badge pins on her left lapel.
