Winter Hike along Tinkers Creek, Bedford Reservation, Cleveland MetroParks

Last weekend we hiked in a local park we've never seen before--Tinkers Creek in the Bedford Reservation. What a genius William Stinchcomb, the person who came up with the idea for Cleveland's metropolitan park system!

Chagrin Falls--maybe 10 miles or so from Tinkers Creek

Many rapids, cascades, and small falls on Tinkers Creek

Woodpeckers at work!
Water weeping from the shale cliffs along Tinkers Creek--freezing into gigantic icicles!
