A Ride/A View/A Meal

I live near Johnstown, PA and it is known as the "flood city"  They had a big one in 1889.  After that, they decided they needed an escape plan in case another flood hit and they built this incline, which is the steepest, vehicular incline, even in the Guiness Book of World Records.    This is not a history lession, just preparing for the pics.
 This is about half way up.  You can see our car parked to the right.  A dreary night, had rained before we got there.  A view of the city.
This is at the top ....almost!!!! 

There is a gift shop and a restaurant at the top.  We went there for supper.  No pics of food!!!!
While waiting, this rainbow came out.

The baseball/football field was taken on the observation deck.  I zoomed in.  The next pic is as I saw it from the top.   See it down there to the left?????

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes.  Had a great day!!!!
