Once in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Peninsula Ohio though, our mood suddenly shifts. May flies and tourists drift about the sweet little visitors center. We take in colorful historical films and informative displays showcasing early nineteen hundreds canal boat building systems. The gift shop houses extensive detailed specialty maps.
Above: Four hardy souls wade in the sometimes-clear sometimes-muddy pool at the bottom of the falls. We stare down at them. How cold is the water, I wonder?
Above: Once on the trails we see tiny birds, little striped faced chipmunks, and a dead dark brown rough haired woodchuck. Long legged spiders crawl over the trail and up onto heavy downed forty foot long trees. It’s cool in the dark forest.
Above: We walk easily along crushed gravel and composted tree debris. Waterfalls plunge fifty feet or more top to bottom cascading noisily over various ledges and spillways.
