Voice of America Park Panorama

On Sunday, Dianne and I went to the former Voice of America site North of Cincinnati that has been turned into a park. It is a large parcel of land that has lots of wild growth to separate a lake for boating and fishing, many soccer fields, a pavilion, and a hill for sliding in the winter. We walked up the hill to take some photos for a panorama. Click here for a single photo of Dianne and me on top of the hill (the Voice of America building is just to the left of us in the background. Here is a 360 degree panorama from the top of the hill. Finally, thanks to the Daily Dose of Imagery site, I made a globe view from the panorama that shows me standing on top of Earl World. It's a neat effect with the water towers above the horizon.

Aren't you afraid you'll fall off? I felt dizzy looking at you.

It does have a bit of a dizzying effect.

Oh my gosh that is an awesome photo! I always wondered what that hill was for. Have you ever seen that guy flying around in his little flying machine. Its a seat with a big propeller thing on back, and a hangliding type of shoot.

I haven't seen him. The closest thing is a gyrocopter that I've seen a couple times at the Butler county airport. Similar, except instead of a shoot the top rotor gives the main lift. You're still hanging out in the open. A little too exposed for me.

My dad is very involved at the VOA park. He is a member of their amateur radio club (http://www.wc8voa.org) and works to raise money for the museum. The place has a pretty amazing history.
