Looking for a gorgeous place to take photos; landscape, portraits, or otherwise? If you are lucky enough to live near northeastern Ohio, you are in luck.

Cuyahoga Valley is by far one of the most beautiful National Parks in the US. It lacks the sheer grandeur of some of the more notable parks like Yosemite, and Yellowstone, but it makes up for that in a multitude of smaller, quaint, vignette-style areas that always deliver in terms of visuals.

And when Autumn rolls around, forget about it! There’s no better place to be with a camera. The trails take you past waterfalls, deep forests, and ancient sandstone cliff faces. The Cuyahoga River runs directly through it (lending the park its name) which also lends its majesty to the park.

So, whether it’s landscapes or portraits you’re looking for in the Fall, start your search here in Cuyahoga and you may never leaf… I mean leave.
