If so inclined

We visited Pittsburgh during the bitterly cold March of 2017 and, despite the chilly blasts, thoroughly enjoyed riding the Duquesne Incline. I don't like heights so it was a trifle hair-raising, but as views from funiculars go, those of the rivers' confluence from that vantage point were spectacular. When in the Burgh, ride the Incline and visit Allegheny Cemetery, a place of staggering beauty.

In a pleasant coincidence we are looking up Camp Avenue, the light-color street at far right, uphill toward Oak Alley as seen in this post from Sept. 8.
