From volunteer work to biking and hiking, folks in the Laurel Highlands took advantage of the Indian summer weather by exploring the Laurel Highlands this past week. 

An Eagle Scout troop spent their entire summer, more than 300 hours, restoring this helicopter at the Vietnam War Memorial at Lynch Field in Greensburg. We honor you for your time and work on this project, Eagle Scouts!

Much like the Laurel Highlands, there's so much to see in this photo. From the rustic goose weathervane to the stunning clouds and the rolling hills in the background, everything is framed perfectly! 

This Instagrammer found what they think is an abandoned spring house in Champion. Oh, the things you'll find in the Laurel Highlands. 

If you're biking 95 miles, like this Highlander, you are guaranteed to see some photo-worthy sights.   

"In fall, the hills turn gold."

Although goldenrod is the cause of terrible allergy symptoms, it sure is a beautiful plant found in the Laurel Highlands!

This explorer ventured to Wolf Rocks, and his photo shows the breathtaking view, featuring a "moody sky" from the peak.

We love seeing photos of Highlanders doing exciting, fun thing everyday. So get outside, explore and be sure to bring your phone with you! Post your photos on Instagram and be sure to use #LaurelHighlands and tag @LaurelHighlands_pa and you could be featured next week!
