I took this photo while looking down into the stairwell..I couldn't help but think of seashells and what they look like when cut in half while admiring the beauty in the architectural design of this historic building. #Architecture Often we go through difficult times in our lives, this is my time. I will come through. I wanted to post this photo because it brings me joy. I will always look for a new day and brighter future. Wish all the wonderful people on Trover the best. I will return. Thank You. Say what you will but this world is full of strange and beautiful creatures. The Cathedral of Learning is a stunning sight to see. It has been coined Some creatures in this world I can't describe. They can only be seen. Conflict Kitchen is a take out restaurant that features food only from countries that the US is in conflict with. The idea is to bring about awareness to the country featured and the people in the country as well as being able to have great food. Currently, the country featured is Iraq. Cuba and Venezuela have been featured in the past. On the menu are items such as rosewater pudding, chicken with pomegranate. Ohh yea the tall one was definitely full of mischief. Bicycle Heaven is a great museum, donation based, for anyone that has an interest in unusual museums. This picture shows Pee Wee Herman's actual bike from the movie. There are 2 levels to the museum( which is also a bike shop, bike repair shop and bike rental). For those biking, it is closely located near the River Trails. Just such a beautiful creature! Watched this Penguin for quite a few minutes. It's seemed to know a secret it wasn't sharing. But it was a bit of a show off. Like I said, this bird was full of mischief. Coming close to me and splashing a little water. Wildlife you gotta love it! Beautiful Pittsburgh from Grandview. 💜 If ever in Pittsburgh give this place a try, I think you might enjoy it. Oh now you folks know me, can't be away from my fine feathered friends. I saw this pretty looking building made out of glass and I had to take a photo. At that time, I didn't know its name. #roadtrip #architecture #pittsburgh #america I want to state that I am always conflicted about seeing these beautiful animals not in their natural habitats. As a person that simply loves to be outdoors. Whether in the woods or along a small River in Ohio. I want to believe that they are well cared for and help a younger generation appreciate all the wonderful wildlife in this world. And there are so many great organizations that help rehabilitate injured animals and release them back to their natural habitat. I also believe all the people I met at the National Aviary truly cared for and indeed loved these creatures. I hope one day humans will realize all life is precious and should be nurtured. But sometimes I worry. The Holi Day Festival that takes place in March at Schenley Field and supports CRY, is an event you don't want to miss. I have tried to come up with something clever to say about this large and small bird, but I haven't been able to. Let's just say I find them to be beautiful. Such a beautiful sight in the middle of winter ❄️ The Hot Metal Bridge is one of Pittsburgh's most distinct bridges--and considering there are over 300 of them in the city, that's saying a lot. Technically speaking, it consists of two different bridges, one being the aforementioned, and the other the Been a while since I took a stroll through Pittsburgh. But took the time to cross a few bridges, and be close to the river. Sign says this is the Andy Warhol Bridge. Had a great weekend in Pittsburgh for Easter visiting friends. This is a picture of St. Paul's Cathedral just off the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. #architecture
#weekendgetaway Great sunset over the steel city #pittsburgh The Cathedral of Learning is what all schools should look like. When you take a class in this building you feel a higher calling #StunningStructures #waterlust #weekendgetaway
A great way to see Pittsburgh is from the rivers that surround downtown. I choose to go with Venture Outdoors and Kayak Pittsburgh. You pay by the hour and the staff gets you quickly from paperwork into your Kayak in no time. Kayaking under the bridges while enjoying the beauty of Pittsburgh is a great way to enjoy the city.

Fort Pitt Bridge is a steel, double decker bowstring arch bridge. It spans the Monongahela River near the confluence of the the Allegheny Rive. This bridge has the distinction of being the world's first computer designed bowstring arch bridge... Impressed ?
The bridge is also infamous for its difficult lane changes and I can personally attest to this... especially the lower level where you have to jump two lanes in about 300 feet. Horn... Accelerator !

The National Aviary is full of interesting birds. A must see if you visit Pittsburg. The Gates Hillman Center is a unique building that houses the computer science program and research. I love how outside the box the building is #StunningStructures A ball park with a view #cityofbridges #steelcity #pittsburgh Late last month, I revisited Pittsburgh for a pirates game. Walking across this bridge is a highlight day or night, and it's always closed to road traffic on game days. Mount Washington with an incredible view of Pittsburgh, PA
#EndlessSummer Bathtub alley after a huge amount of rain I'm falling more in love with Pittsburgh with each return trip. This time included riding the inclines to get amazing views of downtown. The Cathedral of Learning, a Pittsburgh landmark listed in the National Register of Historic Places,is the centerpiece of the University of Pittsburgh's main campus in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. Standing at 535 feet (>163 m),the 42-story Late Gothic Revival Cathedral is the tallest educational building in the Western hemisphere and the second tallest university building (fourth tallest educationally-purposed building) in the world.It is also the second tallest gothic-styled building in the world.The Cathedral of Learning was commissioned in 1921 and ground was broken in 1926. The first class was held in the building in 1931 and its exterior finished in October 1934,prior to its formal dedication in June 1937. #architecture The fountain in Point State Park, which sprays water up to 150 feet (46 m) in the air at the head of the Ohio River, draws upon water from an aquifer that passes beneath the park known as the I've never seen a blue lobster before #pittsburgh #skyline Looking at the PPG building they the point fountain in Pittsburg. This is where we started out bike ride from Pittsburg to DC. Pittsburgh is an awesome place to visit! So much to do and so much culture to see. Everything from Primanti Brothers to your local church's homemade pierogies...there's a meal for everyone's palate as well. This picture was taken down at Station Square. What you see in front to the left is one of the hammer forges left over from a steel mill; which is what Pittsburgh is most noted for.

#phipps #flower #orchid #colorful #pittsburgh I really hadn't heard much about the city of Pittsburgh, except for Terry Bradshaw and the Steelers, and the movie The Deer Hunter. I was amazed with how clean, quaint and beautiful this town really is, now one of my favorite US cities! More from the National Aviary in Pittsburg. Such an amazing place.

#BvsCities #Pittsburgh #Pennsylvania This picture is special to me for a few reasons. First and foremost, it's the city I grew up in. Pittsburgh has been my hometown for 26 years now.
There's also a pretty cool story behind this. It was my first Pittsburgh meet up and it was through Brendan van Son!

Beautiful park. Saint Paul Cathedral is the motherchurch of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. St. Paul's parish was established in 1834.When the diocese was established in 1843 St. Paul's Church was chosen as the cathedral. As the first time downtown area was claimed by industries the residential areas shifted to other areas of the city. St. Paul's property was sold to the industrialist Henry Clay Frick. The present Gothic Revival structure was designed by Egan and Prindeville of Chicago and completed in 1906. Philadelphia contractor Thomas Reilly built the new cathedral in the Oakland neighborhood. The cathedral serves the spiritual needs of approximately 3000 worshipers.It became a contributing property in the Schenley Farms Historic District on July 22, 1983 on the National Register of Historic Place #architecture Th Churh Brew Works offers up some pretty tasty #craftbeer in #Pittsburgh, PA.
