OK. I apparently did not save the Althouse Grand Tour map. It doesn't show up on a search of google maps.

Post it again and I'll try to save it.

I want to see if there is anyone in Ohio near the east fork of something with a floodway. (?)

If there is, you might be missing a glass of wine with Althouse and should complain. Or maybe not.

Since we're all being voyeurs.

You will have noticed now that pictures need a dog.

rh, when I saw I'd taken that first picture, I said now I understand why rh takes those pictures.

What a good doggie! Although the doggie is off leash, he cautiously looks back in the first photo, gauging his distance from his humans and checking for their approval. Is he walking along the Olentangy River floodway? Perhaps near Worthington or Delaware Ohio?

There are a thousand places in Ohio with this type of stream meandering through a wooded floodplain, not far from cultivated fields.

Hope the Prof. is enjoying her visit.

When you see a fork in the road, take it.

That black dog is trying to figure out how to mark that tree without drinking that stream dry.

Well that, or this is tape from a promo for "America's Next Best Dog."

OR, maybe a promo for the re-release of a Led Zep compendium?

Who could possibly know?

If I were to guess, I would have to go with the Althousian Rorschachian Mirrorian Theory.

But dang...doesn't that seem way too obvious?

When you get to the Slossen cut off, get out of the car and cut off your Slossen.

Is that the Cuyahoga River?
That tree kind of looks like the Signal Tree.

Lem,

That was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Hugh Jackman should be ashamed of himself.

RIP Johnny Carson.

fcai said...

So the tree of life is a sweetgum tree (Liquidambar styraciflua)? That movie looks very odd. As much as I like sweetgums, whoever wrote that screenplay knew very little about trees.

I still think this is near Columbus,Ann is playing footsie with OSU Law School, and is toying with the idea of a farmhouse life...or not.

The Cuyahoga river? Is it on fire?

A Mastodon could lift its leg on that tree.

Life needs a dog.......

What is the tree girth? 20 ft?
