Autumn is a spectacular time in Pittsburgh and Western PA, given our region’s dramatic topography and landscape.

To mark the first week of October, we selected a Photo of the Week by Pittsburgh Instagrammer, birder and outdoor enthusiast, @s.napan. His gifted eye captures a colorful and tranquil moment along an iconic railroad bridge over the Monongahela River, located near the Pump House in Homestead.
