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 […]

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.

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.
Of course the wonderful Pennsylvania summer has provided lots of rain. That has provided lots of growth. Some pretty. Some not so pretty. If you can smell it that means your allergies are awesome compared to Crosby's. We were left at home while th humans snuck out to go up the road for some type of superhero party.
Look at us. We have an awesome day for a long walk. We made it to the falls before we turned around today. Yesterday was only a 1.75 mile walk, today we did 2.2 miles complete with a view of the waterfall below and an excursion to see where a new kayak/SUP launch area is being established. Just below Jim Kelly Field they are establishing a new park with state funds. New picnic tables, parking area and what […]
