Don, I figured you would recognize the places those photos were taken right away!
I like walking there this time of year because you can easily see the rock formations before all the plants start growing and make them hard to see. If you'd like, PM me if you are coming this way and stop in for a drink and a hello. Hubby and I love to meet fellow cat people!

Chapen Forest is located in Kirtland, OHio, so if you mapquest it you would get a better idea of distance then me guessing.
Punderson Lake is a state park that is not too far from Kirtland. Also Geneva State Park is within driving distance. If you stayed at Punderson, Nelsons Ledges is not too far, either.

Heidi, it's amazing how much of Tim's personality you got from that picture! I do feel very lucky to have him and sometimes I wonder where he came from.
I was never such a good kid that I deserve such wonderful sons. My youngest spent his spring break with a church group in Boston.
