Day Two Of Tour: Fallingwater

The second day of the tour and it’s more about south western Pennsylvania.  It was a mini road trip to Fallingwater.  Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece of a home for the Kaufman family set IN the rocks of the hillside, set over the water of the stream below.  This was my second trip here and it’s just as awe inspiring as it was the first time.

After the historic piece of architecture we drove nearby to a couple waterfalls at Ohiopyle.  First off were the Ohiopyle Falls, made up of the Youghiogheny River taking a twenty-foot fall with a roar.  It looks different in every season.  With it being spring, there was a great volume of water rushing over the falls.  On the road back home we stopped at Cucumber Falls, one of the higher and more elegant veils of water.  Water, rock, forest.  A theme for the day, no?

Dinner involved yet another delicacy we can’t get in the UK: buffalo wings from Fat Heads in the South Side. Oh, sweet, sweet, spicy parms! How I have missed you! It is still shocking to my own ears, having been a vegetarian for ten years, hearing myself announce my own cravings for beer and wings at Fat Heads!
