Mountains play a prominent – and a gorgeous – role in the Pennsylvania landscape. If you’ve ever been to Pittsburgh, you already know that the best way to experience Mount Washington (and the stunning views it offers) is to climb aboard one of its two inclines: the Duquesne Incline or the Monongahela Incline, the latter of which is the oldest funicular in the United States.
