Ohio River used to flow there

Post by A2022 »

where the sunbeams are coming thru the Ohio River flowed about 20K years ago before the glaciers forced it further South. you can still see the pathway. the Ohio River used to flow around what is now Cincinnati and right thru HAO (home base) airport. glaciers rearrange the landscape faster than any other type of erosion event in geological time. 250 million years ago, Ohio was on the equator. if I was there 250 million years ago, I would be sitting on beach, soaking up the rays with my soul mate listening to some tunes instead of flying at the bottom of the clouds at 0C thinking about those hor stab rivets holding my elevator hinges. :)

I found a hole at 6k feet in an otherwise dark sky. I thought about jumping on top, but the hole would probably soon close.
