This was a hike along a beautiful trail tucked away in Youngstown Ohio. It’s far enough away from the OSU campus in Columbus that I can recommend a stop here for the hike.
This was a hike up to McAfee Knob along the Appalachian trail outside of Roanoke VA. This was the most tiring hike I have taken to date. 8 miles total round trip, up and down rocky trails with an elevation gain of over 1,600 feet. Myself, Stephanie and Steven were mighty tired at the end of this hike, but it was worth it.
A two week trip through Ohio, Virginia and Pennsylvania to see 60% of my children and 2 of my grandchildren, and assorted spouses, in-laws and relocated friends from South. Great trip with warm humid weather. I’ll have pics from a couple great hikes in other posts to follow.
Here’s a pic of Emma and the Fireman, Steven and Stephanie on the trail and Brian and Sammy (at least his backside) at the Barnstormers baseball game.
Here is a pic of Ron and Pat Guoan who now live outside of Cleveland Ohio. I will get floor plans from them so can share with my children what a good grandpa addition to their house should look like.
