Last July when the family was visiting, we stopped at the Rocky River Nature Center in North Olmstead in the
Cleveland Area Metroparks System.
We looked at the exhibits inside the building and then went on our way.
I went for another visit afterwards and discovered that there are 5-miles of paths and vista points behind the building.
The reserve was lush with mammals, birds, reptiles and insects to photograph.
In this first of a series, I found these ducklings and painted turtles sharing a partially sunken log in the marsh.
