October 9, 2007 – Fall in Western PA

Happy Birthday to Andy!!!

A picture of the park:
And our campsite:

The leaves are changing color and it is beautiful!! PA in the fall – no better place to be.

We traveled on more back roads to the Allegheny National Forest. Andy and I would like to do some camp hosting next year and this was one of the places we had on our list. The NF has a number of campgrounds but many have closed by 10/1. So we are staying at the Red Bridge Campground which still has two loops open.

Our campsite:

This campground is by the Allegheny River/Reservoir:

We heard and then saw bald eagles here:

We stopped by Kinzua Dam on the Allegheny:

A view from the other side of the dam:

It is just beautiful here!!!

The evening ended with a nice campfire!!

We have decided to head home tomorrow. Since we entered PA, the pull towards home has been strong and we made the decision to just go for it. We felt that we could do some short trips within PA before the winter sets in (hopefully).

So home, here we come.
