The boardwalk crosses one of the vernal pools. A quick search through the leaf litter and the bottom of the pool didn't turn up any salamanders. Still too damn cold... The sun setting over the western plains as seen from the driving range at the Golf Depot.
The Golf Depot features a driving range with a 2 acres of hitting area and covered/heated hitting bays, a 9-Hole Par 3 course, a 9-hole pitch and putt course, a bentgrass 5,000 sq ft 18-Hole putting course and a restaurant.
The best thing about this hidden gem however, is its views of the downtown Columbus skyline and the best sunset views in the city. Fajitas Zarape (translation; a woven, often brightly colored, shawl or cloak) from Mi Mexico.
Chicken, steak, shrimp and Mexican chorizo with yellow and green
zucchini, green peppers, onions and tomatoes topped with cheese and served with pico de gallo, sour cream, rice, guacamole and refried beans.
Basically, a little of everything from the kitchen piled up on a sizzling skillet. Many parts of the preserve are pretty soggy, especially with the ground just beginning to thaw. The preserve makes extensive use of wooden boardwalks. Spring, the season of renewal, also brings on decay as seen by these protruding fungi in various stages of emergence. The toothy undersides of these fungi are ready to burst forth with the warming temperatures. Neighboring moss appreciates the warming trend as well. The black and bleu burger dusted with black pepper and topped with Amish bleu cheese on a toasted brioche bun from Barry's at the Golf Depot.
Come for dinner and then take in the best sunset view in Columbus. This tiny clump of fungi, no bigger than a quarter, is just getting started on its career of returning this log to the forest floor. Newly emerging fungi impersonating mini sno-cones or velodromes. False Turkey Tail (Stereum ostea) splayed out from a branch along the trail at Gahanna Woods Nature Preserve. A Stromboli (or as the menu describes it, an Italian burrito) filled with pepperoni, ham, salami, onion, green pepper and mozzarella and provolone cheeses! Prost Beer and Wine Cafe is located in Reynoldsburg inside an old fire house of sorts. As the name implies, the main attractant for most is their vast beer and wine selections. For the non-imbibers, they also offer quite a tasty food menu.
This is the Cosmopolitan panini; prosciutto, triple cream brie, fig jam, mixed greens and balsamic vinegar served on ciabatta. One of the many vernal pools at the Gahanna Woods State Nature Preserve. Vernal pools are temporary stands of water usually without fish, which allow many amphibians to breed without the reality of their offspring being fish-food. Depending on how the weather progresses, salamanders should emerge shortly. A view down a fallen tree covered in Turkey Tails (Trametes versicolor) like barnacles on a ship's hull. A rubbery fungus adhered to a fallen tree. The texture was reminiscent of those rubber discs used to open pesky pickle jars. The vernal pool at Gahanna Woods State Nature Preserve. Since there are no fish in a vernal pool, salamanders can breed without the concern of their eggs being devoured by predators. The Columbus skyline as seen from 8.5 miles away at the Golf Depot.

The best thing about this hidden gem however, is its views of the downtown Columbus skyline and the best sunset views in the city. A closeup of some super shaggy, super soft moss poking up through the forest floor. In the foreground, bracket fungi making their home on some fallen trees. In the background, the swamp-like conditions of the Walter A. Tucker Nature Preserve. The only thing missing is some good company. Somehow trouncing through the swamp with a partner seems more adventurous and less ridiculous than venturing out on one's own . Blueberry chocolate chip cookie bar!! Prost Beer and Wine Cafe is located in Reynoldsburg inside an old fire house of sorts. As the name implies, the main attractant for most is their vast beer and wine selections. For the non-imbibers, they also offer quite a tasty food menu.
This are selections from their A mural depicting the history of the city of Reynoldsburg. A very creative re-purposing in progress. The city of Gahanna reused their old wooden street signs as markers to line the trail edges through the park. A pair of pies from Pie's. Up top is the mushroom pizza topped with, wait for it...an assortment of sliced mushrooms. Down below, is the Chicken Jalisco; topped with smoked chicken, roasted fresh poblano peppers, sweet corn, pico de gallo, fresh lime, and sour cream. Savory beginnings and sweet endings at Pie's Gourmet Pizza Bistro. Roasted red pepper and goat cheese fried risotto balls with a bleu cheese fondue. Homemade brownie topped with homemade chocolate ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream and hot fudge.
