The Chestnut Ridge

The view of Chestnut Ridge was taken in October of 2013. Morning fog shrouds the valley where the Conemaugh River flows. The Chestnut Ridge and its companion ridge to the east, Laurel Ridge, were imposing landscape features that early settlers had difficulty penetrating. If you travel Route 22 in the winter time you may have the same experience - this is the snowiest and windiest part of Indiana County.
