Diary from Ohiopyle – Baughman Rock Overlook

One of the most famous place for hikers, bikers and surfers in South West Pennsylvania is OhioPyle. It’s the Summer paradise. I always love going to ohiopyle, doesn’t matter whether it summer or frozen winter. It’s about 90 minutes drive from Pittsburgh. I started at 4:30 AM from Pittsburgh so that I could be at Baughman Rock Overlook before sunrise. Baughman Rock overlook is situated just outside of Ohiopyle on Sugarloaf Road. This scenic overlook provides a stunning view of the Youghiogheny River Gorge above Ohiopyle. It was nice to see some photographers from Greensburg, PA in the early morning on this isolated place. For few moments, I thought coming up early here is going to be in vein because of overcast. The fellow photographers from Greenburgh they left early thinking that the sun show up. But I decided to wait for few minutes, I know Sun will definitely show up behind the clouds. So the bottom line is “You need a patience”.

Cucumber Falls….

As My last post was on Fallingwater, So today’s post I am heading to Cucumber falls and its picnic area in Ohiopyle state park. With its 30 foot drop and gorgeous ravine, it is no wonder that many visitors to Ohiopyle put Cucumber Falls on their ‘must-see’ list. As you get close to Cucumber Falls the mist from the waterfall makes everything wet..and slippery.

Another great place to see near to this falls is Cucumber falls picnic area. A nice isolated area covered by dense woods. Great place for hiking and photography. Below is one of the stream in the Cucumber falls picnic area which carries normally very less water. I like the low POV here.
