Yesterday (Monday) we finally made our annual trek to Hocking Hills State Park and Old Man’s Cave. It’s an all day arduous adventure through towering ancient rock formations a hundred feet high, caves, tunnels through rock, suspended bridges, waterfalls, natural pools carved out of rock, a vast hemlock forest, a fish-filled dammed reservoir, and more. The immense formations make people look microscopic. It’s the hike that makes our routine repertoire look like a walk in the park! It’s exhausting but spellbinding.
Last time, I was so challenged by the rock-climbing part, it was all I could do to hang on for dear life, never mind take photos! So this time we did that leg of the journey first, and I ended up with almost 200 photos! Needless to say, I’m still processing through them, so I’ll just start posting them a section at a time. Here is Part 1. Stay tuned for more.
