Allegheny River Overlook

Bob took off work Monday and Tuesday. I planned Monday’s activities; Bob was in charge of Tuesday’s activities. As one would expect, Monday was filled with photographic opportunities. I am sharing the fruit of those photographic opportunities with you throughout this week.

We departed home (Warren, PA) around 9:00 am. We didn’t return home until 9 hours later! We drove through several western Pennsylvania counties. Our first stop was in Clarion, PA.  Our second stop was at Brady’s Bend Overlook and East Brady.  Our third stop was in Parker.  We made a few photo stops while on the road between Parker and Cranberry.  We ate lunch at Bob Evans Restaurant, while in Cranberry.

After lunch, we drove to the Kennerdell Scenic Overlook.

The overlook was a short 10-mile drive from Bob Evans Restaurant.

 

Hundreds of feet down from the Kennerdell Scenic Overlook is the winding Allegheny River.  This photograph consists of eight images, which I stitched together using Adobe Photoshop.

 

Monday’s day trip began at 9:00 AM.  We arrived at the Kennerdell Scenic Overlook a little bit before 3:00 PM.  We were 1 1/2 hours from home.  It would take another 3 hours (and more stops) before we returned back home.  Our next stop was in Oil City, the subject of my next blog post.

Yesterday, Bob and I went for a drive approximately 1 1/2 hours southwest of where we live.  Our first stop was at the Kennerdell Scenic Overlook located near Kennerdell, PA.

Hundreds of feet down from this overlook is the winding Allegheny River.

 

Our second stop was at Freedom Falls, a topic for another blog post.

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 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.

Bob and Cynthia

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!
