Hi Joe!

I'm glad you enjoyed the latest write-up.

I haven't visited too many places right around Pittsburgh, since it's almost 250 miles just to get there. However, you might enjoy A Tale of Vengeance (Visiting Ohio's Indian Battlegrounds). It has some interesting history near Pittsburgh, dating back to the mid-1700s, including the ruthless attack by frontiersmen on the family of Seneca Chief Logan's family (the "Yellow Creek Massacre").

Other candidates include:

Those should give you a few ideas!

Rick

The resulting 6-mile chasm is called “The Trough” and is a favorite of canoeists (including my dad, back in the day). (Photo courtesy of the West Virginia Regional History Center.)

We’ve taken the Potomac Eagle excursion train through The Trough, and yes we saw Eagles

Hi Bruce!

I've seen Potomac Eagle locomotives and passenger cars several times on various trips over the years. But I've never actually gone on one of their excursions. It's on my list!

Hi Eli!

Getting out for a drive in search of history, scenery, or anything else that is interesting is a great way to shake the stay-at-home-covid blues. Even if it's just for an hour or two.

I hope you and your family are doing okay, too.

Rick

Rick, unfortunately, Covid didn’t spare me and my wife but I thank God it wasn’t serious. I decided to quarantine; hence, I missed celebrating Christmas and New Year with my siblings and my mother . But oh well, at least I still have my family. Take care of yourself friend.

Just wanted to say thanks for posting the trip and scenery.
It is so nice. Also one of the favorite ways my wife and I spend time. I hope you keep it up.

Seeing this post for the first time, I love it and as a Virginia resident I recognize some of the sites. Love the color combo on your 335i as well, identical to mine.

clee1982,

Great, glad to hear it!

It was a thoroughly enjoyable trip (other than having to cross that rickety bridge, which really seemed about to collapse at any second!)

Eli,

Wow, very sorry to hear that the virus got you and your wife, but I'm glad that you're both okay. I hope you can do a makeup get-together with your other family members as soon as everyone is vaccinated (which, sadly, might still be quite a while).

Rick

caldep,

I'm glad you enjoyed the post, and I'm doubly glad that you and your wife get out for a driving adventure from time to time!

I'm convinced the such outings are a safe and responsible way to get out of the house and help reduce all the angst that results from being cooped up at home all the time. I can't help but think a significant part of the current rage in the U.S. is attributable to these consequences of Covid-19.

Start planning that next trip!

Rick

Gregrobin,

Great!

We're blessed to live in the Mid-Atlantic area, where so much history occurred and where there are so many scenic and interesting places to visit.

And the 335i is the perfect conveyance for such touring as well. Happy motoring!

Rick
