A Blast of the Past #100: Ohio Reunion

Today’s post is a milestone of pictures. Been reflecting back through pictures for quite awhile to get to 100. So it seems appropriate that this milestone should feature something as important as a meeting of two Lightfoot branches. In the summer of 2008 the New York and Missouri branches met in Ohio. We stayed in a trailer/cabin on a campground resort down some rural trails off of I-71 between Cleveland and Columbus.

On our one outing off the campground, we went back toward the interstate to visit a historic carousel that you can see pictures of.

Right before arriving at the campground we spent most of a day in Aurora, Ohio at the Saturn dealership, having the shifting cables in a Saturn SL replaced. And right after that I managed to lose my fanny pack. But after the camping we called the police station in the area, and they confirmed it had been found and returned. I must have put the fanny pack on the truck while fueling the car and then drove off — something I otherwise never do.

So a lot of memories on this trip.

KC Zoo: Carousel

The Zoo has a carousel where instead of horses the animals you ride on are various zoo animals. It is a very good idea in principal, but unlike the carousels we ride at the amusement park, it is very slow. It needs to be faster.

The central part of the carousel had a lot of mirrors on it, so while riding I used it for taking interesting pictures.  You can see some of them in the clip below.

P.S. — The final post will be Monday: Penguins.
