A Walk in the Rain


Emily’s description of today was “We drove a long time to get to a forest named after some poet who wrote some poem and had to walk a really long way to see some trees.” For the rest of us, our visit to Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest was a visit to a wonderland. It’s virgin forest with the biggest trees in the eastern U.S. There are tulip poplars there that are four to five hundred years old. Early wildflowers were in bloom and all in all Matt, Cathy, and the two of us were positively enchanted along the two mile hiking trail. We stopped for snacks at a convenience store on the way home and introduced Matt and Emily to Moon Pies and Cheerwine.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
