After a 924 mile drive from Acadia (14 hours and 23 minutes with only three pee stops), The Bearded Man arrived at Cuyahoga Valley, Ohio's only National Park and our newest (designated as NP in 2000).  The area from Sandusky Bay to Cleveland is described by Native Americans as "Kahyonhá:ke," which means "on the river" or "at the river" in Mohawk.  The Bearded Man was greeted by several park rangers,  a pied-billed grebe and a small family of skunks seeking autographs. 

Please Note:  The Bearded Man is not a fan of Buckeye football and would like to take this opportunity to apologize in advance for their upcoming dismal season this fall.
