It is Day 66 since my bone marrow transplant and this is my longest hike since the surgery. We drove 20 minutes from Columbus to Battelle Darby Creek Metropark and hiked 5.7 miles on the Darby Creek Greenway Trail. We hiked past wetlands, prairies and forests with Big Darby Creek just west of our trail. We almost stepped on a snake on the trail. The biggest surprise was seeing five bison out of a herd of nine resting in the pasture. The bison have been reintroduced to the park and roam freely. There was a sculpture of a bison near the trailhead stating the bull bison was the largest mammal found in North America.
