With Indian Summer upon us, Diana and I embarked on a hike along the trails at Chestnut Ridge Metro Park.
We chronicled our trip to the Hocking Hills a few weeks ago, but found something interesting yesterday.
Many people think that beautiful fall colors are only available in Vermont, Upstate New York, the Smokey Mountains or even close by in the Hocking Hills. Yet, the Columbus Metro parks offer some of the most beautiful views in our back yard.
The pictures below are pretty much just randomly placed and won't necessarily follow the story line.
Chestnut Ridge has long been a favorite place for us to get away close by and enjoy nature at it's finest. First, the trails offer some workout as, there is a slow but steady pitch to get to the top of the ridge.
Located at some of the first few bumps that begin the formation of the Applachians and between Carroll and Canal Winchester on the back roads, it's close by yet reminds one of places much further away.
These are just a few of the great photos we got to take as well as enjoying a great walk with Mother Nature and the joy of getting out and getting some excercise.
