This article inspired my Gorge video

Thank you for penning this, Molly. I grew up in Akron, Canton, Cuyahoga Falls, and Stow, and like most folks in NE Ohio, I'd been to the Gorge as a kid. However, after graduating from Akron U in the mid 90s, I've been living in Arizona. This article served as inspiration for an amateur hiking/nature video I filmed at the Gorge this summer (July 2019), although I don't believe my video was articulate as your article.
Nevertheless, being on the trail brought back some fond memories. The video I filmed is here:
If you check it out, I hope you enjoy it.
