We had a lovely 24 hours away from Columbus.
First there was the Pawpaw Festival where everything you needed to know (or eat, or drink) that had to do with the native fruit was right there (more on this later!).
Then there was Ohio University, and the town of Athens. Apparently (as I have now learned) a fierce rival of the OSU Buckeyes.
Then, there was Strouds Run State Park (where we camped) with its tranquil lake, sweet smelling hiking trails, and a lot of buckeye trees and huge toadstools!
We got a little of everything and we were only 1.5 hours away from home. If you have not gone south on Rt 33, I would highly recommend it. Even if it's just for a drive to see the change from flatness to hills!
It's worth a trip.
