A MY WORLD POST of a great metro park near Lancaster,Ohio
Welcome to CHESTNUT RIDGE METRO PARK 486 acres, more than 70 species of birds, and a 2-acre pond.
First, a look at the sky before heading out Looks a little “iffy” to me but by the time Ted R. and I reached the metro park things had cleared up.
In the early fall I sat under that tree on a warm Sunday afternoon and took a nap.
Trail heads to top of ridge which I have hiked before. This happens to be a great park to take children for fishing,playground,and hiking.
A trip around the 2-acre pond. In the summer there is some serious fishing going on.
Make sure to read the “fishing rules” children 15 yrs old or younger. Photo bottom right Lockville Park probably next weeks That’s MY WORLD TUESDAY post.
Ted R. saying, “Thanks for stopping by.”
Hi Joe - Now that Devoted Spouse bought me the fancy camera, I'm gonna have to add this metro park to my list of places to go - can be there in prob a little over an hour so it's worth the drive - looks gorgeous! Doesn't OH have some of the prettiest countryside? Cheers!
Next week will be about Lockville which is only about 10 minutes away from Chestnut Ridge with 3 covered bridges all with in 1/2 hour drive. Lockville highlights the Erie,Ohio,and Hocking canals of a bygone era
I really love your photos. :-)
What a beautiful place for a hike! And you did have the lovely weather despite the early signs. I'm guessing that it will be a few months before you can sit under that tree again for a nap in the warm sunshine, though...?!
Great shots and a very interesting post.
Thanks for the nice autumn hike.
What a great hike! And terrific photos! Thanks for taking us along, Joe! Very interesting post along with the beauty!
Enjoy your week!
Looks like a wonderful park for walking and maybe a picnic. Great photos.
Now that is a beautiful place!
What a perfect spot!
Joe: wonderful photos from the park. Looks like a great place with all the nature.
Hey Joe, Chestnut Ridge Metro Park looks like a neat place to hike and fish... Any waterfalls around???? ha
Gorgeous pictures... Think I need to visit there sometime. Thanks for sharing.
Every time I see your pictures I want to spend a few weeks in Ohio! Maybe we will get to do that someday.
Wonderful photos of a lovely park - even winter has its beautiful side.
Thanks for the tour in the foothills, Joe. Fascinating how other countries look like!
Thanks for your visit!
Napping under a tree in the early fall in a beautiful countryside....
That's a very pretty place.
That looks like a great park. I really like the little bridge. I should do the thing with the satellite photos for some of mine. Great idea.
That is a wonderful Park, Joe. We are so lucky in this country to have these great places preserved for all to see and enjoy.
Seems like you got the lion share of Autumn there
