Link to our first trip of Lodi Park

Date: August 6, 2011

We have moved back to Ohio after spending a year in southern Wisconsin.
Time to visit my favorite and close by fossil collecting location Lodi Park.
Directions from Akron Ohio:

1)Take I-76 W/US-224 W toward Lodi Continue to follow US-224 W ~25 mi
2) Take the US-42/OH-421 ramp to Lodi/Medina 0.1 mi
3) Sharp left at Lafayette Rd/OH-421/US-42 Continue to follow OH-421 1.4 mi
4) Turn right at Elyria St/OH-83 0.2 mi

The goals of this trip was just to have fun.  Earlier this week, we had just driven in from Wisconsin back to our old house.  None of our stuff will be here until mid next week. Time to just enjoy and cool down.  Today’s high temps predicted to be in the high 80s.

First thing we spotted: Northern water snake.

Next, swimming in the deep spot. Water was about 60-65’F.
