A Ride to the Union Railroad Rail Yard near Kennywood

Mike and I did a short ride down to the old Union Railroad rail yard near Kennywood and Duquesne, Pennsylvania last night.  I rode down and met him at the Lowe's Home Improvement store at the Waterfront.  From there we took the new trail that goes under the Rankin Bridge towards Duquesne.  It's not finished yet, and the bridges that cross the train tracks aren't really open...but we made do.  I love exploring on my bike, you get to see so much more of what's around you then you could ever by car.
