Canton Daily Ledger: Fulton County Guide
Well, we may not find too many truly "wild" places but there are a few places where we can escape. In this piece we will highlight some camping areas. In addition there are plenty of other places in the county that offer a retreat. And with the slight possibility that some of our public areas could close, some of the places we speak of can become even more precious.
Let's begin with the nearest to Canton residents: Canton Lake. The lake campground is becoming a popular once again. Numerous weekends have found it pretty full. Fishing in the lake is indeed improving and this could be one of the determining factors to the rise in campers.

CINCINNATI (AP) - Federal authorities
But it's November, little more than a month away from winter, and temperatures are pushing the high 80s.
The average high temperature for early November is 77 degrees, with a normal low of 55 degrees. Wednesday's low temperature was 73 degrees, putting Gainesville at 18 degrees above the normal low.
An area of low pressure over the western Atlantic Ocean is to blame for the unseasonably warm, humid air, said Andrew Shashy, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.
"That's brought most of the winds out of the south and southeast, helping to bring up warmer air," he said.
There is some relief in sight.

The Go! girls and I have bonded over outdoor cooking and it's all thanks to the Appalachian Trail Club and Bunny Schneider.
She's one of the hardy club members who've hiked the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. She's also one of the plucky club members who are sharing outdoor tips with me for a series of segments on SNN-Channel 6.
Alan Roddy offers advice on choosing hiking boots and preventing trail blisters. Libby Tyner shows off a neat trick for putting on a backpack.
And Bunny -- I love calling her Bunny -- reveals her secrets of lightweight trail cooking.
My daughters are already following in her footsteps.

Captain John C. Fremont entered this journal description of his stay in the Santa Cruz mountains in late February, 1846. While exploring in the Santa Clara Valley, he and a group of men had formed a small expedition to march over the coast range. Stopping overnight in the present Los Gatos region, they then headed into the thick woods which crowd the brooding mountains overlooking the Santa Cruz shoreline.
Today, at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, a shaded grove along the Redwood Loop Trail is named in honor of the controversial American explorer, known as "The Pathfinder.
