Photo of the Day: West End Overlook, Pittsburgh PA

I took the image accompanying this post in late June, on a weekend visit to Pittsburgh. Although the vantage point from which this is taken is formally called West End-Elliott Overlook Park, locals have reduced that mouthful to West End Overlook

Whatever you want to call it, this is the best spot to view where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers unite to form the Ohio River. The Native-Americans who inhabited this area first knew enough to take in the area from this bluff, and—now that the smoke that once belched from the city’s factories has gone—the view still can’t be beat.
