Gorgeous View in the Gorge Metro Park of Akron

The Cuyahoga River forms the boundary between Akron and Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Decades ago,  a dam was built on the Cuyahoga, which created a lake in an area that came to called the gorge.

A power plant was also built on the river in the gorge. The power plant is gone and plans are afoot to remove the dam, which can be seen in the distance in front of the trees. This area is now part of the Gorge Metro Park.

It is a Sunday in early November and the trees surrounding the area at their peak fall colors. The river is calm, allowing a mirror-like reflection.

Once the dam is removed, this scene is going to change, but it will still remain beautiful in autumn.
