Scouting skywatching locations in Northwest Ohio

It's a good idea to check out your skywatching location in the daytime before attempting to set up gear, drive unfamiliar roads, and avoid falling into a ditch at night. Today I attempted to find 3 locations with clear views of the western horizon for the upcoming (and currently happening) Mars / Mercury conjunction.

1. Slippery Elm Trail

2. County Road M at Co Rd 3

3. County Road K at Co Rd 8

I'm going to try the Slippery Elm site for the conjunction because it's the closest. The other locations were super windy and super out there, so I might hit them up when it gets a little warmer out.
