A nameless creek winds its way north through Clermont County, from Miami Township to Loveland.

Just before it spills into O'Bannon Creek, it takes a couple of hard turns, forming a horseshoe. This bend in the river doesn't seem all that important. The nearest homes are a couple hundred yards away, and upstream. You can't hear traffic and there's only one obviously man-made object in sight.
