I’ve always amazed myself by how I react to a beautiful scene if I’ve driven 1000 miles versus just a couple of miles near home. Why we humans have a harder time getting excited about things close at hand versus far away is probably due to a number a factors not the least of which is the emotional investment of a long journey. Nonetheless a few years back I decided to make a concerted effort to appreciate natural beauty close to home. What better place to begin this adventure than Griggs Reservoir less than two miles from our house and within the city limits of Columbus. Below is a celebration of that beauty.
