Fallen Leaves: at the Falls

It was my good fortune to present a butterfly program for the Cleveland Natural Science Club, one of Ohio's oldest and illustrious nature groups, and I always enjoy traveling to Look About Lodge. It is part of the Cleveland Metroparks and one of the many areas of natural beauty in the Chagrin Falls area.

Colorful leaves ride the ripples of water created by the falls at Sulphur Springs, part of the South Chagrin Reservation.

It would be a shame to visit the area and not stop by these magnificent falls, located right in the heart of Chagrin Falls. The town has capitalized on its natural beauty and played up the falls with public parks beside the historic bridge. Pedestrians fill the sidewalks, drinking in the sites (and $5.00 specialty coffees.) Set aside some time to wander through the quaint shops, and marvel at all things yuppie-fide. It is fun to see how the other half lives. Your Weedpicker seemed to be the only one in hikings boots in this town!

Watch for the Cleveland Metroparks signs, and visit the many natural attractions the area has to offer. This area is perfect for an Ohio "fall destination" tour!
