Sometimes, scheming plays a part
in making something wonderful. On a vacation to Erie, I found a wonderful book
at a local library. Yes, I go to libraries on vacation. They are delightful
places. The book, Cook Forest: An Island in Time, told of determined men who wanted to preserve a forest of
virgin timber. To do so, they needed to raise money to buy and to maintain it.
The men found ways read more to take rich people on a road through the woods, sometimes
telling them what they wanted and sometimes not. On the times that they did not
tell them, they would pretend to break down so that the visitors had to walk back
through the beautiful forest. The men raised their money, and Cook Forest State
Park became a reality. I am so glad they did. Look at these pictures I took there.
