Walk Among Massive Trees In Spiegel Grove On The Mystic Giants Tree Tour In Ohio

I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
John Muir, the Father of National Parks, had a soft spot for forests. Trees — the massive, towering, ancient monoliths found in old-growth forests — fed his heart and soul. As someone with an equally unabashed love for the Great Outdoors, I find both Muir’s words *and* the forests of which he spoke to be of immense inspiration. Here in the Midwest, we might not have the giant sequoias and redwoods of Northern California, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find towering trees and old-growth forests in Ohio. In fact, there’s an upcoming festival that celebrates all things arboreal: the Mystic Giants Tree Tour in Spiegel Grove, Ohio.
