A Day in Pittsburgh – Part 1

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.

Across the river I could see the Duquesne Incline.


I continued down the trail along the stadium.

December at Heinz Field

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
