10th Annual Ohiopyle Beer and Gear Festival, 2011

Mike and I rode from the Point to Ohiopyle this weekend for the Wilderness Voyageurs' 10th Annual Beer and Gear Festival.  Fortunately this coincided with the opening of the new GAP trail connection in Duquesne, Pennsylvania...which is pretty damn nice.  We took our time and had an enjoyable trip up to Round Bottom Campground at Slush Run where we spent Friday night camping under the stars and rain.  A number of animals kept us awake throughout the night, one which sounded like it probably died 15 feet away from my hammock, but I saw no remnants Saturday morning.  A nice short pedal up to Connellsville from there, where we met up with Don along the way and he joined for the ride into Ohiopyle.  The festival was loads of fun, as always...I think Fat Heads wins with their IPA this time.  A nice floral, tasty offering.  Great weekend.
