The Big Move Road Trip - Day 2

After a restful night, day 2 of the trip included a trip to:

Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Peninsula OH.  This is not your typical national park, but it was quiet and peaceful and most importantly there weren't many people.  There are some hiking trails, waterfalls, etc. A road in the park was closed for construction, so navigating was a bit more 'complicated' that we had to go the long way to see things...but it was fine.  I'd say we spent a good 3 hours here, including the short hikes to Bridal Veil Fall and Brandywine Falls.

The Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield OH.  What a beautiful prison from the outside.  Do you recognize it?  The Shawshank Redemption and Air Force Once filmed here.  The self guided tour was really good - covered a lot of the building and history.  We were probably here for 2 hours.  We took our time and listened to almost all the recordings.  If you are a Shawshank Redemption freak, Mansfield OH has a Shawshank Trail - that will bring you to other locations the movie was filmed at.  

Scioto Park in Dublin OH.  This was just a quick stop/photo op along the way.  The monument is of Chief Leatherlips (because he always kept his word), which was crafted from slabs of limestone.

Day 2 - 288 miles
