May 2 - 8, 2021

Scenic Odyssey In The Historic Alleghenies

Join a small group for exploration in the splendid parallel valleys of the Allegheny Mountains, en route to Pittsburgh. We’ll uncover beautiful mountain villages and stories, some of the prettiest drives in the US, and our trip namesake – West Virginia’s Lost River. We’ll also enjoy the hospitality of unique inns, and several truly special places along the way: the beautiful Seneca Rocks formation in West Virginia, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water residential design, and sites and stories along the old National Road. In Pittsburgh, we’ll explore Gilded Age steel legacy, and the unique geography of the “Three Rivers.”


• The satisfying feel of the adventure – in the warm company of the small group

• Celebration of “the local”: local inns of distinction; local foods and drink; local stories; and “the locals” themselves

• Interesting and poignant sites: Pittsburgh’s Carrie Blast Furnace (and other River of Steel National Heritage Site resources); the Flight 93 National Memorial Site

• Lovely and intriguing towns and villages along the way: Lexington and Monterey, Virginia; Davis, Franklin, and Lost City, WV; Cumberland and Oakland, Maryland; Farmington, Confluence, and Ohiopyle, PA
