I currently find myself lucky enough to live on the edge of nowhere in Amesville. A tiny village in south-east Ohio endowed with a proper carryout, a mom-n-pop dinner, a post office, a bank (without an ATM), and a fine elementary school. Just a few miles up the road is what I consider my own personal recreation area, Gifford State Forest, the location the above picture was taken.

As much as I complain about Ohio's lack of winter weather, the environment this year was able to provide a few spurts of proper ice and snow. It was under this backdrop that I was boarding an airplane in Columbus, Ohio headed toward Paris, France, and my final destination Angouleme, France.

Did you know..
At 320 acres, Gifford State Forest is the smallest of Ohio's state forests.

Where to now?
