A Drone Flew High Above A Mostly Uninhabited Island In Ohio And Caught The Most Incredible Footage
One of the last things most people think of when they think of Ohio is island life. Few people realize that Ohio is actually home to more than a dozen natural islands, all differing in size, their number of inhabitants and above-water presence (with the rise and fall of Lake Erie’s water levels), according to the ODNR Office of Coastal Management. North Bass Island is one of the least inhabited and most peaceful of these islands. In fact, it’s home to just 13 permanent residents, according to the 2000 U.S. Census. Beautiful, quiet and unbelievably peaceful, North Bass Island is a true hidden gem in Ohio. Take a look at some mesmerizing drone footage of the island via YouTube below.
