A Day In The City

After we dropped David's mom off at the airport on Saturday, we decided to do a bit of sight-seeing in Pittsburgh. It turned out to be a pretty day. If the wind wasn't blowing you didn't even need a jacket.

The first thing we did was use the Duquesne Incline. It is an old cable car that goes up a mountain. The view of Pittsburgh was spectacular from there. Pittsburgh is called the city of bridges, and you can see many, many of those bridges from the top of that hill.
Here's one of the cable cars we rode.

During the spring and summer seasons, there's a fountain out at the end of that point.

There's the stadium where the Steelers play.
This is the view from the bottom of the incline.

Going back up!

Undoubtedly the highlight of our day was seeing the Steeler's stadium. It is beautiful! The grounds, the flowers, the whole thing.

The Panthers also play at this stadium.
Some guy that must've coached players! LOL

As you can see, I threw caution to the wind and donned the gold and black!

Great Hall

After the stadium we walked along the riverfront.
There was a nice little monument to policemen near the river.

This might be the ugliest statue I've ever seen! Can you guess who it is? Look closely. . .
Do you recognize the sweater and shoes?
It's a tribute to Mr. Rogers!

Me and Pittsburgh - commonly called Pitts around here.

Hubba! Hubba! ;-)

The boys will take any chance to climb on something, even if it is just a bicycle stand!

Here's a view of the incline we had taken earlier in the day. It's kind of neat that we started out day on the top of that mountain.

Trevor's getting old enough to take some pretty good photographs.

I think that's Fort Pitt Bridge in the background.

There's a submarine outside the Carnegie Science Center.
