I always dreamed of going to dayton ohio skyline images and after looking at the photos on this site, I realized that I needed to go on a tour. I gathered a group of people and we went on a hike - it was such happiness because we had such a great time. I have gained a lot of strength and energy and now I can work again and think about my next vacation.
