Uniontown, PA - Mountain Views Along the Way

These photographs were taken as we drove from Jumonville to Ohiopyle.

We left Jumonvilled and stopped at the flashing red light intersection on the Summit.
Here is the Summit Hotel at, yes you guessed it, the summit.

I took this though the window, grabbed the camera and clicked.  This is a mild warning about the Dangerous Mountain Road ahead.

We drove in to Kentuk Knob, the location of a Frank Lloyd Wright home, to see what we could see but we couldn't see much for free.  We didn't have time to tour the house but did see an incredible unexplained tree.  This is just off of Kentuk Road.

These types of fences are typical in Pennsylvania.

The mist rising off of a pond in Chalk Hill.
 Stone barn with a glazed tile silo along "Chalk Hill Ohiopyle Road".
The road turned in to Kentuck Road and stopped at Farmington Ohiopyle Road, Route 381.  The road becomes Water Street in Ohiopyle. 

 After Ohiopyle, we were finding our way home and saw these wind turbines on top of the ridge.
This is a beautiful drive but if you are going to take photos, you need two people because the driver really should pay attention to the road.  The roads are curvy, steep, and often have hidden driveways.  That is the norm. Some times they are marked with warning signs about "steep road ahead" as if the one that you just drove on was level. Forest on either side, windy road, water ditches along side the road and no room for error!  No room to turn around, so once you turn on the road it is a commitment for a few miles.
