Today’s posting is a collection of drone views from various points around Central Ohio.
We start with a number of Metro Parks.
Below is a smaller one called Homestead Metro Park. The large white bubble in the back right is an indoor tennis court.
There are numerous covered bridges in Central Ohio, and they are popular enough they build new ones on trails as shown in the center here.
Nearby is Prairie Oaks, featuring this lake for fishing.
The northern end of the park crosses Big Darby Creek with a unique bridge (I need a drone with a zoom!). This cable stay suspension bridge has towers 86′ above the creek.
As the name suggests Prairie Oaks is in the middle of fields with some trees.
The late summer colors were vivid.
The last of the Metro Parks for this day is Darby Creek.
Darby Creek is famed for their bison (again – drone with a zoom is needed).
The park was once a massive farm/estate of the Galbraith family, who owned (among other things) race horses.
Closer into town is this interesting view from above. My first thought when I saw the photo is it looks like a graveyard.
From the ground we see the concrete corn cob sculptures – indeed a graveyard for the farmlands of Ohio.
There are a number of abandoned quarries around Columbus. This one is partially filled with water.
Another mystery from above
It is a Native American mound. The natives in this area were prolific mound builders, this one (Shrum) being one of the smaller ones.
The military cemetery portion of Greenlawn Cemetery from the ground.
Much more impressive from 200′ up.
The drone views will continue with part 2 in a day or two.
