We were two days shy of one year from our last visit to Rimrock and the Cornplanter's Cave multi. There was no ice this year leaving much better footing. The weather was also slightly warmer so we were set for adventure and the last stage of this multi.
When you see a lot of bear poop,
and the cave area smells a bit of bear urine,
It may not be the smartest idea to go in.
Then again, it is a great location with some interesting views.

I made my exit through the back of the cave. Lizzie and Phineas were happy to see me.
Later on, we made a last shopping visit to the local grocery store, Bi-Lo. We've shopped here on our stays for fifteen years. Warren is not a very diverse town so we were happy to be able to buy all our grocery needs here with the exception of a few specialty items we brought from Ohio. The store's fate was sealed with the arrival of a Wal-Mart. Wally's offerings met the needs of most locals so the in town store slowly withered. It won't close. It is being rebranded as Topps. We will still be able to avoid shopping at Wally World, but Topps quality and the variety of the offerings at a Topps are a weak substitute for what we have come to rely on. It was a bittersweet visit. Everything changes... usually not for the better.
