Cruisin’ along the Olentangy River

I love the drive on Olentangy River Road between Powell Rd and Rt 23. During the summer it’s lined with trees. During the winter one can get an occasional glimpse of the frosty water. Over the weekend, I set up my camera on the dash … something I sometimes do.

At one point, I was treated to two fawns in and near the road. Their mother was in the pasture next to the woods. Fortunately, the other oncoming driver also saw them and was able to stop. It was the middle of the afternoon which is not normally the time deer are visible. We usually must keep an alert eye out for them on these roads in the early to late evening. I’ve come close to hitting deer, but thankfully so far haven’t had an encounter.
