Our first stop was right as the trail was beginning on a high level bridge over the Yough River. We really had only been on our bikes for about a minute, but we had to stop to take some pics.
So we went over the river and through the woods... and then over the river again to the quaint town of Ohiopyle, PA. We had to stop in to fill up my tires with air, but we didn't really enjoy the town until our way home.
Then we started on the official trail... 11 miles with nothing but woods and a river.
We didn't stop too much on the way to town because we were itching to get some lunch, so we'll skip straight ahead until lunch! The town of Confluence is right on the trail (well, we had to cross back over the river again) and it has a few cute little restaurants. We looked at the map and picked one...
If you think the outside is adorable, then you'll love the inside! J and I decided that if we ever are lucky enough to have a second home in a trail town on a river, we would want it decorated the very same way. It was full of old photographs, dried flowers and vintage accents... check out the old books on the table and the vintage bathing suit hanging in the bathroom. Loved it!
After that we headed to an antique store right down the street and sadly I wasn't able to buy anything (the chances of it making back to camp was slim to none!), but I'll show you some of my faves...
Then we started our trip back... a little more leisurely this time. Here were a few of my favorite spots:
|a popular fishing spot|
|the coolest, most relaxing rock ever.|
|most beautiful part of the trail - look at those leaves!|
At the end of our trip (I'm not going to lie, it was a little miserable for me... I tried hard not to complain but my rear was hurting!) we made a quick stop in Ohiopyle to run into the store and visit the falls.
Then after a lonnnng trek uphill, we settled back into camp, made some dinner, had some s'mores and enjoyed the weather and the roaring campfire!
Overall, it was a beautiful fall weekend! I hope you all enjoyed the pictures (and I didn't bore you too much with them)! On that note, have a good last official day of summer... can't wait for tomorrow!
