Remarks & Notes 
overlook is located midway between Indian Creek & Casparis which is maybe three miles RR east of South Connellsville, PA, and only accessible via rough dirt roads. The river below sits at about 980 feet above sea level. I am at about 2000 feet ASL... This is a remarkable drop in elevation over such a short distance, as this is the point where the Youghiogheny River cuts through Chestnut Ridge. If you look closer the most distant hill in the picture is actually Laurel Ridge, roughly 8 or 10 miles or so to the east, bearing a line of windmills. This photo has been in the The Laurel Highland/ Pennsylvania A place of WONDER Travel Guide for many years. The spread is featured again this year on pages 54 & 55 in the 2010 issue
