The Muskingum parks are wonderful in spring, fall, and winter.  They belong to the permanent site campers in the summer and are best avoided during that time.

I left alone on Thursday and enjoyed Friday just exploring Mohican State Forest and State Park.  Lotsa fun!  Mike and his family came down Friday and we ate at Becky's Cafe.  Great meal although the waitress was a tad bit confused.  Saturday I drove home and picked up the kids.

Got the kids.  We spent one morning exploring Mohican.  Went up the fire tower, saw Pleasant's dam (big) and had a ball.  There is a shrine, youth camp (detention facility).  Then we took a walk on the lake bed.

At about 9 AM we went to Malabar Farm State Park and did the Butternut Trail followed by the Doris Duke Woodlands Trail.  It really wore the kids out.  We went to Christopher's and had a GREAT lunch.  A nap followed.  Showers, Nintendo, and a movie:  Indiana Jones.

We went back to Malabar to do the Junglebook Trail.  This we did in snow.  Lots of snow.  Tons of snow.  Neat, neat, neat.  We took a walk around in the park.  Due to wind, our fire was not at all enjoyable.  A chair blew into the fire and it destroyed the webbing.  Then I lost a tarp in the same fire.  Wow.

A good winter trip.
