We decided to head up to the NE to try and catch the fall foliage. This was gonna take some serious windshield time. Everything is at least 3 days away from Oklahoma, so we just had to deal with it.
We took off a couple weeks from work and ventured out with the Avalair in tow.
The goal is to hit 3 National parks along with Niagara Falls, a few lighthouses and the Atlantic coast. I won't bore you with the details of the time in transit. I'll just hit the highlights.
Our first National Park was in Ohio. Cuyahoga Valley National Park. We are trying to hit all the National Parks in the CONUS that we can drag the Avalair to. We have been collecting the sticker for that park and putting it on the bumper of the trailer. It's been sort of an obsession.
I was a little disappointed with this park. I don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. It was nice, but very little info. The visitor center was small and had 2 rangers, a few brochures and some souvenirs. we actually got more information from the owner of the local hiking shop across the street. It's more of a trailhead. If you are a hiker or a biker, this would be a good destination.
They had a really cool train that was owned by a private company, but apparently they sold out all the seats for the weekend we were there. Oh and they are very touchy about you being on the property if you are just wanting to take pics etc. The RR Nazi ran us off.
Cool old gas station, turned into art gallery in downtown.
