It was late afternoon as I paddled into Pittsburgh culminating my trip down the Monongahela. There were many power boats and jet skis messing about as well as the Clipper Fleet’s large sightseeing paddle wheels. Their circuit was predictable so I waited for them to toot the whistle and pull put before proceeding downstream.
At Fort Pitt and Point Park is a fountain sporting a rainbow in the low fading sun. It was a joyous moment shared with nobody but I felt accomplished and rewarded for the effort. Next up are 800 or so miles on the Ohio River and a lot more tow traffic to watch out for. Made it 40 miles down to Chester, WV for a package pickup and hope to dodge some afternoon showers if the shore suits. Solar panels arent working so I’m stopping more for internet. Be well!
