Jun 30, 2015 - Allegheny National Forest and Recreation Area, Kinzua Dam

We left this morning from Sayre, Pennsylvania, traveling west to Titisville, Pennsylvania. This trip took us through Allegheny National Forest and Recreation Area. The scenery was beautiful as we passed by the Allegheny Reservoir and Kinzua Dam even with the rain. Since the sun did peak through a few times, we were hoping for a rainbow over the dam but no such luck. However, there were water falls running down the side of the bank on the cliff along the road. Interesting fact about Titisville. The first oil well in the WORLD was drilled...

Day 2: Red Bridge Campground and Rimrock Loop Trail Trip Details for Tuesday, October 1st -- With sparse tree cover to the east of our campsite I was expecting to awake to sunshine this morning. Instead, mist hung over the reservoir until noon. A sunny Autumn day emerged for a grand finale at sunset. After a leisurely breakfast and site cleanup, taking time out to watch a bald eagle, we drove the Longhouse Scenic Road to Jake's Overlook for views of the reservoir and the Kinzua Dam then drove along Rte 321 to the dam itself. The area was...
