Golfing In The Appalachian Mountains

I headed up after work to stay at my nephews cabin in the Pennsylvania part of the Appalachian Mountains. Here I am crossing the Allegheny River at the Emlenton high level bridge. I stayed at my Nephew's Jeff cabin here with his son Abram. He is really a cutey.
We hit the links the next day and the weather looked threatening.
There were a couple of Bluebirds in the area but the clouds didn't allow much light.
The morning changed quickly and it turned beautiful. It was a little windy as shown by the American Flag.
Here is our foursome, we shot 11 under after a slow start. We birded the last 5 holes. This is my brother and his two sons. We won one skin on a long putt I made on the final hole. No-one else had been able to handle the sloping green. I have played with my brother a lot this year and the scramble was a fun time.
The clouds were showing off in the mountains of Pennsylvania.
