Hinckley Reservation

Today’s adventure: Hinckley Reservation in Hinckley, Ohio.

In the past I have sort of grouped like-pictures together, but this time I am going to post them in order to take you on our little journey.  There were tons of pretty scenes to take pictures of.  🙂

We started out at the Hinckley Bathhouse.  People fish here, play in the water, have picnics and lay out in the sun on the man-made beach.

Then, we made our way up to the lake and the trail that begins there.

Jake always likes to find trees to climb.


We found an “off the beaten path” trail to explore.

Back on the main trail.

Awesome view of the trees and the sky.


Great view of the lake.

Found another path through the woods.  Reno was definitely having fun.  And another neat picture of the sky through the trees.


We made it to the opposite side of the lake where you can rent all different kinds of boats or buy some snacks.  They also have a little deck to sit at, shaded by the trees.


There was a nice view of people on the lake.  We also found a lot of nice areas that made for pretty pictures.  This is about our half way point.

After exploring the area, we made our way up to a path from the creek.

Jake found a vine to swing on.  🙂


Found a really gorgeous area and also discovered the panoramic option on my phone.  😀


We continued our journey on this trail and found some swampy areas of the lake.

Toward the end we found a grassy area with benches and overlook of the lake.


We came full circle back at the bathhouse and cooled off in the water for a little bit.


And that concludes the Hinckley Reservation adventure!

Afterward, I gave Reno a bath and it was time to relax.  Naptime for the puppy.  🙂
