An autumn drive around Western PA, Maryland, and West Virginia

One of our favorite pastimes is going out on long and random drives. We opted to take a ride through Ohiopyle, PA, Deep Creek Lake, MD, and Cheat Canyon/Lake, WV. Here are some photos from our ride! Our first photo stop was on the Route 40 National Road Scenic Byway. The Autumn views were stunning!

 View of Wisp Mountain in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland! You can read about our ride on the Wisp Mountain coaster here!
 Deep Creek Lake vista
 I can just smell the fallen leaves and hemlocks. The air was crisp and the leaves were crunchy to step on.
 The colors were fiery and vibrant.
 Now over to Cheat Lake, West Virginia!
 The leaves are peaking right now! Don't let the opportunity to check out these leaves pass you by. 


Trostletown Covered Bridge, Stoystown, PA

I noticed this back in the spring off of the Lincoln Highway around Stoystown, PA. I try to stop whenever I spot a covered bridge because every one of them is different and walking or driving through one is like stepping into some sort of time portal. This is the Trostletown Bridge and it was completed way back in 1873. I thought the bridge was cool, and then I turned around and noticed something that startled me:

 A Huey on the attack! Definitely one of the more strange things I have run into. Seeing this Vietnam era helicopter made me feel like we were in a movie. This is located at the local American Legion chapter. It is not far from the Flight 93 Memorial that you can read about at this link.
