So as I stopped at one of the rest areas, I noticed that there was a ship heading down and would probably be going through Detroit as I would be going through Detroit (if I detoured). So I decided to take a slight detour and stop in Detroit before going home.
Well there was my trip. I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Pittsburgh was established in 1758 as Fort Pitt. It was named in honor of the British Earl William Pitt. It was incorporated as a township in 1771 and borough in 1794. Currently, its population stands a little over 300,000.
Just west of the Horseshoe Curve is the Gallitzin Tunnels. The first tunnel was built here in 1854 and was known as the Allegheny Tunnel. In the 1890's, this was expanded to two tracks.
