Reflection of the Dayton Skyline During a Colorful Sunset

The glassy smooth Great Miami River perfectly reflects the office buildings forming the Dayton Skyline, which in turn reflects the warm and colorful sunset which took to the skies over the Miami Valley.  The five-side pavilion residing on the edge of the Great Miami River represents the five rivers which flow through the Dayton area.  The structure also represents the spot where the first Daytonians, Samuel Thompson and Benjamin Van Cleve came ashore on 1 Apr 1796.  A pavilion inscription shares the first person to set foot on shore was Catherin Van Cleve Thompson…the great-great-grandmother of the Wright Brothers.
