Where I stayed
Sunset Mountain, Little Valley Mountain Resort
We stopped at Panera for breakfast, Larry had a french toast breakfast sandwich, Derek had an Asiago breakfast sandwich and I had a Pink Ribbon Bagel with cream cheese. We got back on 71 and headed south through Columbus. When we got to the split in Columbus we started to suspect that the ramp to 71 south was closed and it was. We went north on 315 and turned around. We stopped at a rest stop to "drink and drain" as I used to say when I taught grade school.
Our next stop was on 71 in Cincinnati where there was more construction and we had a half an hour delay before we got on the bridge
We got here about 5:30, checked in, and drove up the mountain to Sunset Mountain Cabin. The sun was starting to set as we unloaded. The setting is spectacular and we can barely see other cabins. Our back porch faces the sunset. While Larry and Derek watched the end of the OSU football game, I fixed Chowderwiches for supper: a sandwich roll, a baked fish fillet, covered with clam chowder and corn topped with cheddar cheese. We ate on the porch as we watched the sun go down
I cleaned up the kitchen, Derek turned on the fireplace, and then we skyped Erin. There wasn't much to talk about and it was too dark to show her much of the cabin so we had a short conversation. We read for a while and listened to Wide Spread Panic and Kathy Matea on the TV. Then we went out to the hot tub right before bed. We could see the stars through the trees overhead. We read some more while listening to a CD called "Pure Pickin'" that Derek got from the library. We went to bed about 11:30 and slept great. The pictures are from this morning.
