Carey, Ohio

Until I started flying, I never knew how many quarries there were in Ohio. They seem to be everywhere! From about 3,000 ft., they are gorgeous. This is Carey, Ohio. Population of about 3,600 in 2010 and this quarry outside of town is one of the larger ones I’ve flown over to date. It’s about halfway between Columbus and Toledo as the plane flies, but you probably wouldn’t ever see it driving unless you were headed there on purpose… which apparently a lot of people are, according to the all-knowing wikipedia: there is an annual gathering of Catholics, mainly from the Middle East, who come from around the country on the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. During this gathering, chanting can be heard even from across town, and thousands of people camp in public parks and empty lots to attend the religious procession. Interesting.
