Photo Of Ohio River From Eden Park Overlook In Cincinnati

Here is a photo of the Ohio River I took from the Eden Park overlook in Cincinnati. I took this picture last July.

Here is information about Eden Park. 

I was thinking about our great inland rivers this morning because I have started to read Mark Twain–A Life by Ron Powers.

The Ohio River and Twain’s Mississippi River connect in Cairo, Illinois.

We are all connected as well.

  3. Eamon–I read Huck Finn in school many years ago. Might be time to do so again. Please visit the blog again. I added your blog to my blogroll.

    Bill–I often go there after I get off the plane in Cincinnati and before I go home to parents house.

  4. Besides the calming view of the river and the opportunity to pause and reflect, there’s also the pleasure to be derived from watching kids ice skate on the frozen pond in winter, old men and kids play with battery-driven boats in the summer.

  5. Ok, so this is funny. A friend of mine and I have places where “we tak’em when we tak’em.” IE — perfect places to go (where we tak’em) end a date (when we tak’em). She’s an Eastsider and I’m a Westsider. This is one of her places — mine is Mt. Echo. I, too, have many fond memories of this very spot. LOL
