Location

Did you know?

The Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which runs between Akron and Cleveland, is land that has been occupied by humans for over 1,200 years.

Description

In his views of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, landscape photographer Geoffrey James shows us natural beauty, but also reminders of the impact of humans on the land such as fragments of the abandoned locks of the Ohio & Erie Canal and modern bridges. James described the park as “a great democratic open space. . . like no other national park I have seen.”
