At Scioto Audubon Park

IMG_0604Today was one of those days where you just can’t stay inside.  Kasey and I both felt like exploring, so we set out for the Scioto Audubon Metro Park on the Whittier peninsula, just south of the Brewery District.

It was a beautiful day, with a gusting breeze, bright sunshine and a temperature in the 60s.  It was a perfect day for a man and his dog to take a walk — and we weren’t the only ones who thought so.  We strolled along the busy Scioto Trail, which is part of the Central Ohio Greenways trail network, stopped at the Audubon Park buildings, took in a view of the muddy but shimmering Scioto River, and then walked to the other side of the buildings to get a view of downtown Columbus from the south.  After Kasey showed that she was interested in tussling with, or at least barking at, every other dog on the trail — what the heck, she obviously felt the sap rising — we decided to call it a day and head home.

One of these days Kish and I are going to get out our bikes and head down the Scioto Trail to see where it takes us.
