Elle,Crosby and Phoebe set out to check on the current status of the Allegheny River along Seybertown Road this morning 20 July 2021. Here is what they have to report and video and photo. If you haven’t been watching Allegheny Outfitters upriver regarding emergency rescues or Kinzua gauges you may want to start following both areas. It appears this crazy rain event that started last Monday really added a lot of moisture to the watershed. Based on what I’ve been […]
Heat dome in the west, hurricanes in the gulf, rivers rising with the northeast rains. Say what you may about science but here’s a picture. Guess which one is Mondays versus Wednesday if you live in Pittsburgh you know. Duke even received a mouth full of water jumping and not realizing how deep the short became with all the leaves.

Here’s a little Fourth of July photo dump. We hopefully have pulled a new generation of river rats into Knee boarding and tubing. Phoebe and Crosby are still good with just trails. They are not yet ready to swim as sisters, Phoebe tried the life jacket and an assisted doggie paddle, but didn’t enjoy the muck. This time they were able to explore the Phillipston portion of the Armstrong trail.

Yes the dog is getting out in nature. The little break from heat and humidity was appreciated by the elkhound.

Sometimes when you live close to the water creatures find there way indoors. One seven footer even found its way into the basement today. Let’s just say we’ve added a grabber to our amazon list. Our snake actually was pretty smart since it ended up getting upgraded tonriverfront property. Thanks to Dan, Daniel, Jeremy, Amy, Ed, Ginnie and Jake for assisting with our little removal project. Let’s just say it was a real neighborhood building event.
If you need a minute to breathe, open this up in your browser and play the video. Just listen and take in the water. After reading about the discharge from Olean into the Allegheny sometimes being on top of the water is the better option. It sounds like Olean is not happy either since they tend to recreate in the river. After the paddle debacle at the Anything that Floats, the new ones are a little lighter. Slow river traffic […]
Riley’s River Rats will be walking again this year in Pittsburgh on 8/25! Last year’s River Rats took a minute to take a team picture at the river. Please join us. River Rat’s Team Page
Could the Allegheny River be on the verge of getting new technology? Or could Potter County be the location for the next clean water environmental camp?OK, maybe not it’s not going to be in East Brady, but definitely in Coudersport. It looks like the battle started over a year ago and the PA DEP is finally getting around to hearings for the needed permits to discharge treated frack water into the Allegheny River via the municipal treatment plant in Coudersport. […]
We tried to walk the trail but there was ice. We will have a new beach this summer thanks to the ice erosion. Thanks to the #icewall at the boat launch it may explain the flooding on the other side of the bridge. We are one week later and the water only has small #icecubes. If only we had a drone to video. First the tree is still hanging in there. The vegetation has been cleared between the ice and […]
The start of 2017 had sand and sun. Hello from Destin, then off to the Magic City. Crosby claimed the front window in Charleroi. We went to Mars for one crazy birthday party. Then had one last farewell to our favorite postman. Ran the Yough River Trail in snow, then ran around PNC Park in our undies. Thanks for giving to help fight NF. Tumors for kids are not cool. Then we said goodbye to Milwaukee before celebrating RJs bday.
