mount assisi sunken gardens

Jake was away this weekend, so I thought it might be a good time to schedule a longer motorcycle ride. The Mount Assisi Sunken Gardens were on the list for an upcoming Do Johnstown! article so I thought this would make a fun bike trip. Honestly, if we wouldn't have already had this scheduled, I would not have suggested this yesterday, due to the temperature (above 90 is too hot for motorcycle riding, in my opinion). But, since we already had it on the books and were looking forward to it, hot weather wasn't a good enough reason to cancel.

We took longer routes there and back. On the way there, we took 271/22 and when we came home, we took 22/160. So, it was a pretty nice ride. Plus, there's a lot more shade on the routes we took than if we would have taken 219.

Once we got there, we walked around the gardens for a bit and Brian snapped some photos. The gardens were very nice. I recommend going when the weather is a little cooler, though. They had some pretty cool concrete benches and whatnot, but you couldn't even sit on them because they were too hot.

All in all, I give this a thumbs up. It's definitely a place I'd like to visit again.
