Family Visit with Cynthia and Larry

This past Sunday Bob and I drove to Kennerdell, Pennsylvania, to visit Bob’s sister, Cynthia, and her husband, Larry. Cynthia and Larry chose the Kennerdell area for a two-week vacation. The drive from our home in Warren to Kennerdell is approximately 1 1/2 hours.  Please click here for a map of our route.

On our way to Kennerdell, we stopped for a short time at the Tidioute Overlook.

Cynthia and Larry’s “home away from home” was Camp Kingfisher, a three-bedroom cottage located alongside the Allegheny River.

There is easy access to the river and the Allegheny River Trail from Camp Kingfisher. Larry had traveled the trail by bicycle to Emlenton the morning of our visit. He said it was 10 miles one way to Emlenton.

We enjoyed our visit with Cynthia and Larry. Our conversation topics included house projects, work, family, and present and future vacation plans. We also enjoyed a delicious meal that Cynthia prepared. Our main course was lasagna and salad, followed by chocolate cake for dessert. Cynthia had prepared two pans of lasagna, with the intention of giving us one pan to take home. We took home one pan of lasagna, which I promptly cut into individual portions and froze. We’ll be enjoying Cynthia’s lasagna for several days to come!

Before beginning our drive back home, Bob and I drove a short distance to the Kennerdell Overlook, which provides a scenic view of the Allegheny River.

This was Bob and my first visit to this part of Pennsylvania. We hope to make a return visit one day and explore the area in more detail!

    Oh that looks like a great place to visit! I can't get over how all the trees are leafed out ~ some of our maples are full and some are still pretty tight and bare looking. A few warm days and they'll fill out too. Thanks for sharing!

    It looks like you spent a beautiful day! I love your photos, they show the beauty of the area so well. I really think the home away from home is in beautiful surrounding too.

    It looks so green there, Linda – must be all the rain you had. Also, the river looks high. I love lasagna – enjoy some for me!

    What a lovely trip and it was lovely seeing the photos, especially of Bob and Cynthia together as brother and sister. All the other photos were great, just loved that beautiful scenery. Thanks Linda.

    A real nice place, Linda. Great Images that you've taken. River looks like it might have some good fishing in it. I assume that you and Bob did not take the bike for that visit.That Cabin looks real nice to be in. Wonder what it costs to rent a place like that for a week?
