Near my neighborhood.....

The Falls of the Ohiois one of my favorite places. My family came here all the time. Bike rides, hikes and picnics. We even got a few pieces of driftwood and some river rock. Now taking driftwood and rocks will get you tossed in jail and a fine. When I came here as a child it was just grass, trees, rocks and the river. The Interpretive Center is a great place to learn about the history of the river and what type of aquatic life it sustains. Now and in the past. The river has been very high the past few weeks so you will have to wait for a picture of the fossil beds and really cool rock formations. The kids and I love to go walking and climbing over the rocks and looking for some fossils. It is also a good lesson on taking care of the environment and why rivers are so important. You have to be careful though, you never know what may go floating by on the Ohio River.
