Country Mouse Goes to the City

With family visiting we decided to head in to the city to take in some of the sights...

We took the Duquesne Incline to the top to catch a (rainy) view of the city and the three rivers.

View from the bottom as the cars go to the top.

We also stopped at Clayton - the mansion of Henry Clay Frick.  The grounds and the house are amazing.  Above is a picture of the children's "play house" which now houses the gift shop and start of the tour.

There is a wonderful greenhouse on the property as well.  If you are ever in Pittsburgh, touring Clayton is worth the visit!  See you on Monday!  Have a great weekend!

I do believe that "play house" is bigger than MY house! And is that greenhouse to die for, or what? Have a great time!

I'll have to check it out sometime. We live in Ohio, about 1.5 hours from Pittsburgh.
