View from Devou
One of the spots to take pictures of Cincinnati is across the Ohio River at Devou Park in Northern Kentucky.
This tree, now obviously broken and half down is surely the tree that was here and in the sides of images my father took here many years ago. It appears the tree was hit by lightning, yet manages to stand tall.
This seating area was not here when I was a child. It is so lovely to be able to sit, relax, and enjoy the view.
As you sit among the roses...
...this is your view.
Now that the seating viewing area is open, the old tree will no longer be part of so many pictures taken here.
So, here's a view of Cincinnati from Devou Park on a hot and hazy morning. The large bridge in the foreground is the I-75 bridge connecting Ohio and Kentucky. If you look carefully on the right side of the image you can see the Roebling Suspension Bridge, John Roebling's prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge.
