9 February 2013 Marion County GeoTrail Part 3

The weather was wonderful. It felt like spring. The ice was gone, and the water was open. Since we were in Ohio we made a short trip to Marion County to officially finish the geotrail. We enjoyed a nice walk along a bike path.

This old railroad bridge is celebrating its 100th birthday this year.

This large mural graces the side of a building in downtown Marion and overlooks a small park. We missed finding the cache, but the mural was worth a stop.

We celebrated finishing the geotrail with a stop at Tim Hortons before heading off for the geocoin. Tim's was a special treat. They were featuring Valentine's heart-shaped donuts with chocolate icing and cherry filling. They were a throw back for us since Tims used to sell chocolate-covered, cherry-filled donuts years ago when we first stopped at a Tims in Lockport, New York. It was a fun visit to the past.

We finished our afternoon with a quiet walk in a pleasant nature preserve in Crawford County.
