Ohiopyle Part 2On our Saturday journey, my brother took me to the once joyous Presley Ridge summer camp buried deep in the forests of the Ohiopyle state park. Presley Ridge is a well known school for troubled youth in Pittsburgh PA. They once owned this camp for their students in the summer program. The camp contained vast acres of cabins, an outdoor kitchen, stage, fire pits, a ski slope, zip lines, and my favorite spot: the old pool. Each area of the camp was about a quarter-mile walk deeper in to the woods until you would breech a great opening to find the next treasure. This giant pool lays still with the echoing memories of splashing, screaming, and summer fun for many. The no running sign made me laughing as it still is relevant around the pool area as it has become even more dangerous to run around. The tip of the pool had and old steel slide that was once a fun way into the pool, now a perfect way to break a tailbone. The ends of the slide were stamped, “AMERICAN” reminding me of elementary school. For years our playground consisted of two giant steel slides like this one (that felt like someone polished them with turbo grease everyday) , a rickety old merry-go-round, and a swing set mad of heavy chains and wooden seats. Although today most parents would file a lawsuit for dangerous equipment like that, the most fun I had in recess was on that old slide and merry go round. This area was incredible as it was old and weathered sitting for over ten years, yet things like the deep end rope markers still lay suspended over the half empty deep end that has formed its own ecosystem.
Getting the chance to experience and explore these hidden and forget ton treasures of the world makes me wonder how much more is out there? So many of these great camps, ideas, etc, have gone to waste because our government simply can’t afford it. Where is all the money going? Although it is sad, its great to see what beauty comes out of things left behind.
