Finally a beautiful morning here in Pittsburgh (yes that’s where I am!) and so we decided to stroll in the lovely Schenley Park.
It is only a few minutes walk from where we are staying but feels like you have delved into darkest deepest Pennsylvania. Well apart from the many bridges that is!
Schenley Park was created in 1889 following a donation by Mary Schenley, a locally born heiress who was living in London at the time of the donation. It once had a race horse track but these days you are more likely to find human runners than horses.
Today as we strolled down into Panther Hollow the joggers were outnumbered by the squirrels and chipmunks.
It was a quietish morning in the park, not silent though as the crickets and Stellar Jays were making quite a racket! I didn’t manage to take any photographs of them but was delighted to spot and photograph Woodpeckers, American Robins, Doves and even a Groundhog in the undergrowth.
Our stroll today was inspired by Restless Jo and her Monday Walks.
