164: Water so clear you can see all the trash at the bottom

I had no idea the Monongahela River could be clear enough that you could see the bottom. So clear in fact, that all of the accumulated trash and debris can be seen from the shore.

Today was the first of many (I hope) summer walks with Sophia, Johnny, and Amy. We started out with the plan to walk a bit in the North Side and then head over to the Three Rivers Arts Festival.

75: A tree tried to murder me and I almost killed Amy. Again.

Goals for today included walking on French Street (Downtown) and finally making it up to Crawford-Roberts to walk more streets. Amy was able to come with me but I’m pretty sure she regretted that decision at the end.

65: South Shore, The Bluff, Crawford-Roberts, SS Flats

The Bluff is an area of Pittsburgh I’ve been looking forward to exploring since I started this project. The Bluff aka Uptown has been known by many other names over the years: Soho, Boyd’s Hill, Ayer’s Hill.

58: South Shore, North Shore, Golden Triangle

My walk today was different than most of my others in that I covered a lot of miles but not that many streets. I parked at the bottom of the Duquesne Incline and started off towards the West End Bridge.

Day 50: Downtown

Tourists in our own city. I feel like that every time I walk but especially today. My friend Amy and I took the wonderful weather (a bit windy but warm) as an opportunity to visit the Central Business District, aka Downtown, aka the Golden Triangle.
