Sunday, December 9th, I spent the day in Pittsburgh. I hitched a ride with my brother-in-law and family who were going to the Steelers’ Game. We got up very early and parked at Rivers Casino. After a very filling brunch we split up and I began walking. I started down the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. I passed the USS Requin docked at the Carnegie Science Center.
I continued down the trail. The Carnegie Science Center was behind me.
I could see fans taking advantage of the Gateway Clipper Fleet to cross the river to the game.
WDVE was in action near the stadium.
Across the river I could see the Duquesne Incline.
I continued down the trail along the stadium.
I passed the “A Gate” of Heinz Field.
Some fans were enjoying the outdoor cafe’s and entertainment.
I used the sidewalk along the bridge to get to Point State Park.
I didn’t take any pictures from the bridge because I felt like a turtle going the wrong way during a salmon run.
This gives you some idea of how many people were going toward the game while I was going the opposite direction.
In Point State Park I passed the Christmas tree at the point and
the Fort Pitt Museum.
