Cuyahoga Valley National Park: Brandywine Falls and Gorge

Noelle and I had both visited Cuyahoga Valley National Park before and Brandywine Falls was the only section of the park we had seen before. Still, the falls are spectacular enough that we decided a return visit to the falls was in order. We drove to the trailhead parking area and hit the trail with Sierra in the backpack. Because she knew we would be hiking to a waterfall Sierra kept talking about "piggies in the water", she would eventually get her wish, but first it was a short hike on a boardwalk

After viewing the falls we hiked the loop trail that passes through the Brandywine Gorge. We saw a few wildflowers in bloom like sneezeweed
