There are no geysers or canyons, but the 20-mile stretch of the Cuyahoga river between Cleveland and Akron is a proud part of the U.S. Park system. Thirty-five years ago, the park service began cobbling together scores of private parcels " including a polluted industrial property -- to create what's now the 33-thousand acre Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It became one of the most visited of the nation's parks under the stewardship of Superintendent John Debo. Debo retired in 2009, and now Stan Austin is stepping in. He's currently superintendent of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Rainbow Bridge National Monument in Utah. He takes over as head of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in August.
