For years I had a great commute to work. A drive through Cleveland Metroparks awaited me each morning when I was at home. It offset the many, many weeks of travel. It also gave me a wonderful opportunity to stop for a few minutes on the commute and enjoy the world. Now my commute is twice as long through ugly traffic. Maybe the worst piece of the commute is no visits to Cleveland Metroparks. This evening was one late hope of seeing wild hyacinths along the Chagrin River this spring. I was lucky and happy for the chance.

The weather at Allegany State Park is usually one of two extremes. Either the day is hot and sunny or there is some precipitation. Today, like last year was a day of rain. It rained enough for the group photo to be taken inside the event tent for the first time. Signal spent most of the time under cover too.

We were on our way to Pennsylvania with plans to attend the ASP Geobash the following day. The weather was too nice to pass by a walk at Indian Trails Park in Ashtabula. Jack-in-the-pulpits grow large here.
