Top 12 of 2012 - Number 6:Dundee Falls

When I told all my friends way back when I was living in Detroit that we were moving to Ohio, the comment most said to me was that it was a flat, boring state.  Well they were wrong.  VERY wrong.  You see, the experience of Ohio most people that live in the greater Detroit area have is what they see out the car window when they travel to the amusement park Cedar Point.  Between Detroit and Sandusky, OH, it's flat.  It used to be a marsh way back when.  So I was amazed when we moved over to Northeast Ohio.  Hills and glacier cut valleys and rock outcroppings.  It really is amazing.  And when I moved south to marry Denise I entered northern Appalachia.  Lots of rolling, beautiful hills.  That's why this location I find so amazing.  For a couple years now I kept hearing about this place called Dundee Falls and we finally were able to find it. Dundee Falls is actually a state wildlife area that is open for public use.  In other words, it's public hunting grounds.  What I found so amazing about this area is how much it reminds me of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park area.  In an area surrounded by farmland and hills, this is a unique place.  But also an area that needs to be taken care of.  Lots of trash and graffiti.  But still one of my new favorite places.
