Leith Run Campground in the Wayne National Forest
Camping on the Ohio River – Wow!!! A small, quaint, quiet park with only 19 sites.
Watching the barges go by, with supplies we all use every day, was simply amazing and
peaceful. Getting off the grid so to speak, we’ve learned so much about how some of our
supplies get from here to there….
The drive to get here was…..well……another gorgeous canvas of green………lots of
bridges and construction, even a nuclear power plant……Mike handled the roads like we’ve been doing this forever!!
A bucket list for Mike on this part of the trip was to visit Marietta, Ohio where he spent some of his childhood years. We drove by his old house and neighborhood in the suburb of Devola, stopped at the Locks and Dam down the street where he went fishing with his dad and brother Steve many years ago.
Then we headed to the town of Marietta, had a bite for lunch and
poked around a bit more. A small quaint town and pretty neat.
We took an 8-mile hike on a marked trail through the Wayne National Forest – started at the
campground. Saw some very interesting things along the way. Who knew that there would
be water pumps that look just like oil well pumps in the middle of nowhere????
