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.
Once upon a time, dinosaurs roamed the Buckeye State. Once wholly underwater, Southwest Ohio is littered with rocks holding marine deposits from the Ordovician Period, when ancient ocean covered most of the United States more than 450 million years ago. Fascinating, right? You can discover all sorts of “prehistoric breadcrumbs” along the Ohio Valley Fossil Trail, a partnership of a dozen parks, museums, and other regional sites where fossils can be seen and touched — including today’s feature destination: Trammel Fossil Park.
