We vacationed for a week in Ohio. On Sunday, April 23rd, we visited a scenic overlook and saw three waterfalls.
At 6:30 am it was a chilly 36 degrees. It didn’t get much warmer later in the day.
We spent the morning sightseeing. We drove to Bedford Reservation, one of 18 nature preserves managed by Cleveland Metroparks. Bedford Reservation is located in the North Valley region of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The reservation features a deep gorge, which was carved out by Tinkers Creek.
Our first stop in Bedford Reservation was at Tinkers Creek Gorge Scenic Overlook.
Our second stop in Bedford Reservation was at Bridal Veil Falls. We parked in the Bridal Veil Falls parking lot and walked across Gorge Parkway to a trailhead.
Our third stop in Bedford Reservation was at Great Falls of Tinkers Creek.
From Great Falls of Tinkers Creek we drove northeast approximately 10 miles to the village of Chagrin Falls. Located at the heart of Chagrin Falls on North Main Street is a waterfall. From either side of Chagrin River there is a boardwalk that leads down to an observation platform from which to see the Chagrin Falls waterfall. We viewed the waterfall from both sides of the river.
After photographing the waterfall, we climbed back up to Main Street. We went inside the Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop, where we bought a bag of popcorn, caramels, a small vanilla custard, a small dish of ice cream and an espresso.
From Chagrin Falls we returned to Hudson. We ate lunch at Yours Truly Restaurant. This restaurant was busy and noisy. We each ordered sandwiches, which were tasty.
After lunch we returned to our Hudson Airbnb rental, where we stayed rest of the afternoon and evening.

Thanks for the memories — we’ve visited these waterfalls, but it was may years ago.
The waterfalls and surrounding areas were simply lovely. I like the picture of you and Bob, too. Nice smiles.
Great photo of you both, Linda, and what a change in the weather from the previous days when it looked much warmer and sunny. Spring doesn’t seem to have arrived there yet. Hearing the sounds of waterfalls is always wonderful.
