In the Hocking Hills of Ohio, the Hocking River has carved a beautiful and rugged gorge from the sandstone. Numerous geological features have been designated state parks and draw many visitors to the region. One of these is known as Old Man's Cave because a recluse lived in a recess in the cliff during the late 1800's. This part of the gorge has several large waterfalls, numerous small waterfalls and some wonderful color and texture in the rocks and plants that seem to thrive in that environment. The high humidity helps to bring out the rich greens, I found.

I really like that shot of the lower falls, the trees in the water really give a sense of scale when compared to the huge boulders, does the river ever clean up, or is it one of those that is always muddy?

Looks good, Stan. I always enjoy seeing the same scene from other photographer's persepective.

I have to look at this when I get home. I can't see pics at work for some reason. We love hiking at hocking hills and have some great pictures from here! Did you ever do "shoot the hills" photo competition they do every year?

Thanks, Caleb. This was my first (and probably only) time there, so I don't know. I suspect it always has some sand eroded from the sandstone in the gorge.

Thanks, Julian. There is a lot of hiking available in the gorge, with lots of steps down and up. Also, for an extra 3 miles you can hike to Cedar Falls (another thread). We passed on that opportunity and drove to within 1/2 mile or so of Cedar Falls. I felt like we did 3-4 miles that day in three locations, much of it steep stairs. It felt good, and I need it to get in shape for some hikes I plan out west.

Lucky recluse.

I feel the same. This gorge was simply beautiful and I could understand his desire to stay there. Of course, you must enjoy eating pine nuts and squirrels.:lol:

Thanks, John. It's hard to go wrong in such a beautiful place. We really enjoyed our time there.

Just a tourist in Ohio, not even aware of the competition.
