Ames Forester


I left Iowa early last March for Ironton, Ohio, and six months as a Co-op Forester on Wayne National Forest in the Ohio River Valley. Southern Ohio has a topography similar to northeastern Iowa and has a forest of oak, hickory, tulip-poplar and smokestacks. The land is beautiful, though much of it is abused. The air along the river is often brown and smells of "money."
