The Little Miami River is omnipresent in these parts. It seems around every bend you find yourself along side or crossing over this magnificent river. Traversing five Ohio counties before joining the Ohio, she is named after the Miami people who lived here during European settlement. She has been named a Natural Wild and Scenic River by the US government.
In the summer, she often hosts thousands of kayakers and canoers as they splash down her fast flowing waters, enjoying some summer sun. During the winter, she is much quieter, frozen around the edges from the bitter cold. I visited her yesterday at her Landon, Ohio point just below the 22/3 highway bridge. We had a short conversation, before the trees napped by camera. She was a gracious host, wearing her beautiful winter white dress and entertaining as only she can.
