Since we have moved to Ohio, we have heard many people speak, ahhh, less than favorably about the place. Many of them have never been here, so whatever to them!
However, I will say that while Ohio is really a very nice place to live, chock full of really very nice people, rarely does it wow me. This past weekend, Matt and I were suitably wowed at Old Mans cave. Supposedly some old hermit lived here, but I think its spacious enough for 2 or 3 hermits. The WPA came through during the depression and turned it into an adorable forest wonderland. Its not quite Rivendell, but defintely could be a subuurb of Rivendell!
