April & Nick: A Wedding at St John’s Cathedral
If I were to tell you that a wedding rehearsal would start with a Power Point presentation you would probably think "BOOORRRRRINNNGGGG".  I probably would too, but when Nick took over the large screen with his deck of stats on the wedding party it was nothing but hilarity.  One of funnest wedding party reviews I have ever seen.  Ev ...

Blue Hen Falls
It's probably been 16 or 17 year since I was last at Blue Hen Falls.  A lot has changed.  Back then it was in the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area.  Now it's a National Park.  Back then I went in armed with zip lock bags, rulers and a notebook.  I was spending my mornings and afternoons capturing and cataloging salamanders ...
