I struck gold in central Ohio! Although many trees have completely dropped their leaves, there are still large swaths of forest that are decked out in yellow. I stopped by two parks this week. On Thursday I visited the Sharon Woods Metro Park (part of the Columbus/Franklin County Metro Park system), and on Saturday I went for a walk in Char-Mar Ridge (part of Delaware County’s Preservation Park System).
Although fall color in Central Ohio is past its peak, for a short while longer you can still see pockets of color like those pictured above. Enjoy it while you can!

Excellent photos of fall foliage!
Thank you, Subra. 🙂
Thanks, Roberta. I was thinking that my unidentified tree with the yellow leaves might be an American Beech, but maybe you’re right, and it’s a linden tree. If I had only taken a photo that showed the tree’s trunk, I’d have been able to sort it out.
Most winters in central Ohio haven’t been too bad, especially if I compare our weather with northern Ohio and their lake-effect snows. I really enjoy the change of seasons here. But it could be as I grow older the snow and ice of winter will seem more troublesome.
I believe that tree is a linden tree, the photos are beautiful, I told my hubby ohio is very pretty area if you can just stand the winters.
Wonderful photos, very much “in the woods” – not just looking at it from afar.
