We went back in Ohiopyle. This time by bike.
And what an awesome ride! Waterfalls and cliffs on the right, the Youghiogheny river down on the left. Sometimes it was placid and sometimes the river was roaring. And then it seemed all day perfect weather and a canopy of trees. Across from the river was a busy train track. If it came when I was in the right spot on a river bend, it sounded like it was roaring up behind me.
I had a nice chat with a couple from Sacramento, California.
Along the trail was a memorial to the 239 men killed in a mining explosion. As a result miners no longer wore open flames for light.
I was the first to roll out of the GAP Trail campground. I ride slower than Joan. So sometime during the day she catches up to me and we might get lunch together.
We bike 47 miles from West Newton to Ohiopyle.
We stayed in a room in an old house with the other three bedrooms full of bicyclists riding the trail.
Today was a good ride too but too long for my body. I will have to tell you about that another time. I didn’t sleep well for two nights, I need to sleep now. G’night.
