One of the benefits of having friends who live all over the country (and
all over the world) is that you often get the chance to visit places you
ordinarily wouldn't make plans to visit. Such was the case when I visited
Columbus, Ohio, from February 24 through 28, 1999. My friend Stephanie
was celebrating her birthday, and I needed a long weekend where I could
relax, unwind, and see what Ohio had to offer. The links below will give
you a glimpse into the things I saw and the places I went. Unfortunately
I didn't take many pictures, but the photos I did take should give you an
idea of what Ohio has to offer.
A note on the picture above: This was actually taken inside the Ohio
State House. This bust rests atop a small monument commemorating the Civil
War Battle of Vicksburg.
