I am back up to my old tricks again. This time, I brought myself (actually my sister drove) to Columbus, Ohio via a trip to Pittsburgh to visit my sister (aka driver). After a short, flat drive, we arrived in a very friendly and unexpectedly hip town.
Ohio has the MOST extensive museum in the basement I have ever seen...
It was quite a shock. I learned a little about Ohio government and the biographies of a few of its governors. I believe I have also since forgotten everything I learned. We skipped the gift shop and the formal tour and stomped around the grounds outside.
The state house is tucked in the middle of a business district and dwarfed by large high rises. My favorite view was of the tall mirror building reflecting the state house and McKinley.
Big tall building... little tiny reflection...
... and now off to Short North for shopping.
