With this being the first time we have towed a trailer, I was somewhat concerned about finding RV parking. Turns out that Cuyahoga has RV parking at the Boston Mills Visitor Center and we were the only ones there at 8:30 in the morning. The main facilities were closed, but an open air pavilion would be open at 10:00, complete with Park Rangers. We parked the kayak trailer and drove over to Brandywine Falls. The falls were pretty, but nothing spectacular (we have many beautiful waterfalls in the Finger Lakes). We drove over to the Ledges and enjoyed that hike much more. It reminded me of Kentucky's Carter Caves. It had rock ledges, with lots of trees and conifers growing in the most unexpected places. The coolness was restful and the views were pleasant. We drove back to the Boston Mills Visitor Center and decided to work on the Jr. Ranger program. They have a really cool scavenger hunt that helps to educate about Cuyahoga Valley which includes a canal towpath, historic villages, a railroad and scenic drives. Once I finished the packet, I found the park rangers stationed in an open air pavilion with masks and social distancing in place. It was great fun to rekindle the excitement of completing the packet and swearing the Jr. Ranger pledge. With a smile on my face, we drove over to East Harbor State Park and found our campsite had low hanging trees which, while beautiful, would make a mess of our Sprinter. We checked with the front desk and hopped over to the next site and all was good. This is a beautiful park right on Lake Erie with wonderful hiking trails. Looking forward to more exploration tomorrow.
