Cascade Park in Ohio

Another 24 hour adventure in the books! This was an exhausting 24 hours for sure this trip but it ended beautifully. I had a couple meetings near Sandusky, Ohio for work which led us to driving all night to the border of Ohio. The trip on the way to Sandusky only took about 3.5 hours avoiding tolls. After completing my meetings, we...

When you get on...

The drive is even beautiful and we couldn’t get enough of the colors changing the deeper we got into the forest. This park isn’t as...
