Discover the Awe-Inspiring Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks

The graded arches symbolize the earthworks both above and below the ground. The moon rises above them, representing the many lunar alignments found in the earthworks and the rhythm of nature that has been written in the land. Water features run along the base of the earthworks just as they once did, thousands of years ago. Purple was chosen for the sky to symbolize a wise, revered and maternal presence.

OGLEBAY Wheeling West Virginia

While well known for its spectacular holiday light display, most visitors do not realize that Oglebay Park in Wheeling, West Virginia, has so much more to offer all year long.

Pro Football Hall Of Fame Marathon

  Photo by OHventures The night before the 2nd Annual Pro Football Hall of Fame (Half) Marathon in Canton, I had a major case of the pre-race jitters. And rightfully so. It was no one’s fault but my own, but I had not trained nearly as adequately as I should have – and I knew better. Last […]
