You and I live in a wonderful region of the State of Ohio because of its people and scenery. In fact, the Seal of Ohio depicts the Scioto River flowing between cultivated fields and Mount Logan in Chillicothe. I love the quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “ Each moment of the year has its own beauty…a picture which was never before and shall never be seen again” and the blessing is that we know the author of each of those moments. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says it best, “God has made everything beautiful in its time”.
We know that there are plenty of people in the Shawnee Valley District who share a love for the natural world God has created for us to enjoy. You may love to hike, kayak, canoe or fish so we thought we would create a quarterly adventure for pastors and laity and their families as well as friends or neighbors to join with others for an adventure in God’s good creation. We will name a particular place and a starting time each quarter where you can come enjoy the fellowship of others. You can pack a lunch and enjoy eating lunch together as well. We will let you know if there is a lake at the selected place for those who would rather kayak, canoe or fish.
You're invited to join us on our next outing - March 9, 2019 at Scioto Trail State Park near Chillicothe.
Scioto Trail State Park - EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO PREDICTED INCLEMENT WEATHER
Nestled within the beautiful 9,000-acre Scioto Trail State Forest in Ross County, Scioto Trail State Park’s 218-acres are a wooded refuge just south of Chillicothe. The ridgetops and winding forest roads offer breathtaking vistas of southern Ohio’s Scioto River Valley. The beauty and remoteness of Scioto Trail offers the best of escapes to park visitors. Camping, fishing and paddling are just a few of the adventures awaiting outdoor enthusiasts.
