In my life, I must have been to Sandusky, Ohio, at least half a dozen times. Mostly my time was spent at one of the world’s great amusement parks, Cedar Point. At that time, the Magnum roller coaster was king, in part because of its huge, steep hill that gives you a phenomenal view of Lake Erie. For as many times as I rode that coaster, I can honestly say I had no idea that there was life beyond the seemingly wave less shore. Boy was I wrong!
There’s just not life out there on Lake Erie, which is named after the Erie tribe of Native Americans who lived along its southern shore. there is a whole culture, a renaissance of sorts, brewing on the islands and shores of Lake Erie. There’s a reason it’s nicknamed the Midwest Keywest But the lakes region goes well beyond the good times of island life, this section of the United States is also full of ecological wonders, like glacial groves on Kelley’s
Island, that when put into historical magnitude rival any of Cedar Point’s behemoth coasters.
Since Beth and I are not students of science, we teamed up with Stacy Carpenter, a wetland scientist who owns and operates Blue Lion Training, to help introduce us to some of the unique environmental details of the Lake Erie Shores and Islands region to bring you a look at what makes this Great Lake so special. With her help as well as regional expert, Ryan Whaley, of Green Door Mediaworks, we embarked on a three day late summer adventure to unearth two of America’s greatest hidden gems: downtown Sandusky and the Lake Erie Shores and Islands.
To get things rolling with our upcoming series on our visit to northern Ohio, Beth and I put together a smattering of our favorite Instagram photos from the trip to give you a little taste of why visiting downtown Sandusky and the shores and islands of Lake Erie should be on your list of must-see destinations in 2013.
In addition to being our eco-expert on our adventure through Lake Erie and Sandusky, Stacy also put together a few amazing posts about our time in Ohio own on the Blue Lion Training blog, all of which you can find below:
