University of Pittsburgh



While back home in Pittsburgh, we took the kids on a tour of Oakland where the University of Pittsburgh is located. It is also Dave's alma mater. This picture is the Cathedral of Learning. It is the tallest school building in the western hemisphere with 42 floors. This is one of the main attractions of the campus and one that we enjoyed showing to them. They've seen it before, but never on a walking tour. Actually a freezing walking tour in the dead of winter. Why not? lol

Definitely a cool building to have on campus.  In January, I'd rather be touring the inside though...  :)

Hi Carol,

Just browsing some of your older entries and reconized this place...
I visited it a few weeks ago while in Pittsburgh with some friends. Haven't seen many entries on your journal lately. Wish I could say the same here....sometimes it takes me nearly a month to list something myself. Retirement has been the busiest time of my life....just not enough hours in the day.
