Here are some photos I took after riding 13 miles on my bike. I figure when I can run up those 236 steps backwards with a 80# pack I might be ready to keep up with Sneaky on the 2015 elk hunt.
Ariel-Foundation Park is a spectacular 250-acre public green space under construction in Mount Vernon, Ohio. The park is being built on the site of the former Pittsburgh Plate Glass manufacturing plant.

The old smoke stack with a spiral stairs up to 150'

Neat constructed large shelter using some of the old plant. Also an elevator shaft from the plant.

Behind that large open area is a peaceful labyrinth to meditate on.

More of the grounds and two elevator shafts that reached the three floors of the old plant. 13 million donated dollars went into this beautiful park.

Thin air only thing left.

The grass has not had a chance to get started. Should be much better next year.

Sounds like a good workout. I've always found the lack of oxygen in the mountains to be the biggest problem to overcome in a weeks time.

CJ, if Sneaky hits a hill up there with a spiral staircase, you should be able to stomp his butt grin
