Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio

Added on by Nathan Hoang.

I ended up in Cuyahoga Valley National Park on the way out of Cleveland, feeling a little bitter because hours earlier, I got a bag of useless shredded money which can't be put towards either of the tickets I got in the last 24 hours.

I wasn't planning on going to Cuyahoga—I was originally following the signs to Akron, but I can't resist a national park.

Cuyahoga is Mohawk for "crooked river," which is funny because the name of the day's game was to take the most crooked path possible to West Virginia.

Of all the states I was most concerned about, West Virginia was the top, so a quick stop at the park just outside a city where a former Clevelander told me to bring a gun, is welcomed.
