Autumn in the Gorge Metropark

gorge02

I went out to do some non-train fall photo stuff one afternoon. Here is a shot looking toward Cuyahoga Falls from Akron in the Gorge Metropark area.

The railroad connection would be those old bridge supports in the river. While many of us remember the “high” bridge and “low” bridge at this location, the high one started out as an interurban bridge (Northern Ohio Traction & Light), built about 1903 and converted to a road about 1938. The link below has some neat old postcard views of this area.

With the removal of the gorge dam coming in the future, this scene will change a lot once again. For more background on this site, click on the link below.
