2016 Spring Stampede

The Spring Stampede was held on May 14.  Tim “the Tour Man” Baker planned a scenic drive to points of interest east of Pittsburgh. . . but Mother Nature had other plans.  Through the rain and cold (luckily, the snow held off until the next day!)  we persevered and enjoyed the day together.  Thank you, Tim!

Our day started with a roundup in Monroeville.

At the inclined plane in Johnstown, we saw where the Johnstown Flood of 1889 occurred.


Our next stop was to pick up lunch in Portage.  What we thought was a welcome for the GPMC was actually a cheer for the local sports team.
