Discovering Pennsylvania, Day 2

So I've realized after looking through a few older posts that I totally forgot to continue the photos that I took from my mom's visit here back in June/July of last year. I need to stop letting myself get so behind on this blog. -.- But I don't want to interrupt the photos from PA, so I'll continue with those, and then post the rest of my mom's visit afterwards... plus some photos from a spontaneous trip to Oregon.

Anyway, back to Pennsylvania's trip. Day 2 revolved all around Pittsburgh. My dad lives about an hour north of the city, so we started early.


We stopped in Carnegie first before getting into Pittsburgh to get a photo of this beautiful Russian Orthodox church.


And this equally beautiful Ukrainian Orthodox church right next door.


Going through the Fort Pitt tunnel into Pittsburgh, I liked how this turned out.


Me in an eyeball chair right outside the parking garage that my dad parks at every day.


This was a beautiful old church right in the middle of downtown... the photo does not do it justice!


The cracked and broken tombstone of a Revolutionary War Veteran, in an old cemetery located right next to the beautiful old church.


Side view of the church... I liked how the new buildings were mixed right in with the old. It was like that all over downtown.


Market Square. I forget what that glass building was called but it was pretty!


Same building, closer and from a different angle.


Dad and I with the Christmas tree. A nice guy offered to take this shot for us.


Walking along the river. It was really cold down there. I wanted to walk further but Dad was getting too cold and we were running out of time anyway.


Very creepy depiction of Mister Rogers.


Me with Pittsburgh in the background, taken up on Mt. Washington.


Closeup of the Steelers stadium, from the lookout at Mt. Washington.


Pittsburgh at a glance - the city of bridges.


Driving towards the 16th Street Bridge.


Beautiful heavy door that still worked, built back in 1869. It opened into a very old cemetery. (this was after leaving Pittsburgh, in the city of Harmony)


View of the fence surrounding the cemetery.


It was a great day and I really loved all the quality time I got to spend with my dad. :] Him being all the way across the country really gets to me sometimes, but it's trips like this that make it better. Look for lots of snow photos in the next update, Day 3 in PA!!
