Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


This weeks A-Z ARCHIVE CHALLENGE : R, is sponsored by Frizztext.  Check out other related articles on his site highlighted above.

I have chosen photos of the Three Rivers of Pittsburgh taken from my archives to use for this weeks challenge.

The Three Rivers of Pittsburgh are well-known for the commerce, recreational and sporting environment they provide for the local and visiting people who come to this area. The confluence of the Allegheny River from the northeast and Monongahela River from the southeast flow into the Ohio River. The Downtown area between the rivers is known as the Golden Triangle, and the site at the actual convergence, which is occupied by Point State Park, is referred to simply as “the Point.”
