I'm impressed with the topography of those ravines! Sometimes I forget that the Appalachians spill across the Ohio borders.

Rand's photos of the sand deposits at Sand Run remind me of the sand at Germantown MetroPark in SW Ohio. The ravine with these sand deposits is home to a 150.3' Tuliptree, 139.5' American Sycamore, and 133.7' Black Walnut.

Here are two photos from Germantown Metropark . . .

Here's a video of the Tuliptree. I named it The Scholar.

Matt,

Really loved the video! This could be the beginning of a new phase of artistic expression that focuses us on the places that we hold near and dear. Loved the music. I find that the right music goes along way to enhance personal enjoyment of nature videos.

Steve- You and Randy are really making some great discoveries. Like everyone pointed out keep on posting about this fantastic area. The trees of the Ohio River Valley have much in common with the Ms River Valley. They all would have been very tall before the logging began. I always enjoy your postings. Larry
