take a hike

My husband had an extra day off last week (in addition to the fourth), so we took advantage of it and spent an afternoon/evening in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Although there were people around (as evidenced by many cars in the parking lot), we felt like we had the place all to ourselves!

Malcolm had a lot of fun roaming the open field and quickly took off to explore, while the husband started grilling our dinner ...

Then it was time to hike the Ritchie Ledges Trail!

My husband has been coming to this particular part of the Park for years with his family (and, later, with me in the early stages of our relationship), so it was a lot of fun to see him and Malcolm enjoying the same hike together. 

Our dinner took a bit longer than planned, so we didn't get to spend as much time in the forest among the ledges as we would have liked ...  We will definitely be back before the summer is over (and probably many more times after that)!
