We found a nice campground by Cleveland, Ohio. The owner told us to be sure and visit the local graveyard! It turned out to be one of our highlights. Below is a view of downtown Cleveland from the cemetary.
Trust Dean to head for the big bucks tombstone.
One crypt even has a Tiffany window. Remember the old TV show The Untouchables?
A couple more very cool headstones.
Our primary reason to visit Ohio was to explore the Cuyahoga National Park. (number 45 on our list. Only 14 to go) There is a towpath running next to the remnants of the old canal system through the park. We had a great day and biked 23 miles on this trail. It was interesting to stop at all the information placards and read the history of the old lock systems.
The goldenrod was blooming everywhere.
Rose needed a few rest stops along the way. We ate our picnic on the rocking chairs at the visitor center. Autumn is around the corner.
We saw lots of deer and but they were too quick to snap. The heron and flowers behaved themselves and stayed still for me.
One of the great things about this trip was you could bike one way and catch the old train back. It cost $3 and they load up your bike and your bum gets a nice rest on the return 23 miles.
Next stop; Louisville, Kentucky and family.
