About Me

I'm a woman entering "the third chapter" and fascinated by the journey.

An embarrassment of riches

While western West Virginia has its own beauty and is no slouch in the biodiversity department, Northwest Ohio has a range of ecosystems that we don't. Here are a few that I'll miss when I go home:

oak savannah at Kitty Todd Preserve

tallgrass prairie at Wildwood Metropark

sedge meadow at Irwin Prairie

more sedge, this time under trees

glacial dune at Secor Metropark--yes, the remnants of the mile-or-so-deep ice that used to be here
Magee Marsh
the Crane Creek estuary

another view of Crane Creek as it empties into Lake Erie
and of course
Lake Erie.
