Gotta watch those filenames, they all but give it away :) A nice ride out though, I enjoyed the gravel road just past this bridge. Thanks!

So, I get to tag a place now? Is that how this works?

*** NEW TAG ***



Public art is neat, even though I don't quite get it all the time. Sorry I broke the theme!

This is a public installation by John Raymond Henry, placed in this park 1977, in which it's titled after the city it's located in.

When you find the park, hang out for a minute and enjoy the view of the Allegheny River, won'cha?

Thanks, she's a work in progress, most of the time. Decided I was going to ride instead of wrench today.

BTW, WTF is BFE? :)

Nah, took a picture, took the tag pic, then came home. Probably about 50 miles round trip. Not the middle of nowhere, but not quite close :)

I'm from around where you are. It's a little warmer down this way, but usually not by too much! High 30˚ 's.

Wink Drop



I know that there was a drop a few blocks away (and the roads leading to it are not the most inspiring for a ride) but I was getting cold and really wishing for spring. Since the Pirates are still undefeated this season I thought why not recall some warmer times with a tribute to one of the last times the Pirates actually won the very last game of the season.

Yeah, you got me. Left some tracks. Oops :)

Anyway, I was having way too much fun doing this, so I did it again.



He's a creeper, for sure.

Drop it Like it's Hot



I had to take a photo the quickest that I could, because my camera battery died immediately after this. So uh, this is as good as it gets.

Getting here is a fun ride, there is a stretch of fine gravel involved, but it's mostly pretty packed.

Right behind me, that little watch/radio tower is for a lock and dam. This one in particular is named for a Florida Congressman who was born nearby here. The dam splits up (and partially submerged) a state park that's located in the middle of the river. The bridge behind me belongs to a highway that's kind of a big deal in this state. And the road that this is at the end of kind of has a silly name.

Have fun!

PS - My poor old red pig had a slight heart attack on my way back home from taking this, so she's stashed behind a building somewhere in Penn Hills until I get a UHaul to go fetch her :( It's actually a pretty funny location, which I found out after I was trying to explain to my girlfriend where to pick me up. Lost spark for some reason (I think), hopefully it's not serious :(

Don't tell me I had to U-Haul my bike from the Abby Lee Dance company in vain! I know the weathers been bad :(

Hint: The tiny town (... settlement? Group of houses?) you pass through is named after what a dog does.
