Mohican State Park, OH

November 22, 2012

Three of four children were going to be out-of-state for Thanksgiving so we decided to do a short road trip with Peter, Heather, Muy and Bunni (their dogs) to Mohican State Park in central Ohio.  We drove up the day before Thanksgiving and arrived in time to do a six mile (round trip) hike on the lower North Rim and Hemlock Gorge trails.  The weather was unseasonably warm as we hiked along the Clearfork of the Mohican River.

We had a nice dinner in the Mohican Lodge and stayed in “dog friendly” room with two double beds.  Peter & Heather brought drinks and snacks for our evening Farkle games!

November 22, 2012  “Thanksgiving” – Peter made coffee in the room and got out the orange juice he had brought as well as the blueberry buckle, pumpkin bread and banana bread that Heather had baked the day before.  We served the ladies breakfast in bed!

We then drove to the dam to start our three mile hike to Little and Big Lyons Falls, the Covered Bridge and back to the dam along the Pleasant Hill trail.

We celebrated Thanksgiving early because the Fischers were going to be in Kansas City.
