Enjoy winters splendor on the 6-mile trek  from Old Man’s Cave to Ash Cave.  Refreshments are available at Cedar Falls for a donation. A shuttle bus returns hikers to Old Man’s Cave. 45th Annual Winter Hike January 16, 2010.

     Since refreshments are going to be at Cedar Falls I think I’ll check it out in advance.

Weather in Ohio sure can change fast. These photos were taken just a day apart.

If your visiting this area a great place to stay is The Inn At Cedar Falls

Hey Todd, (Are you Joe or Todd?????) Wow---Cedar Falls --especially in winter---is amazing. Glad you made that nice, long hike on a cold winter's day... I showed this one to George and he said we need to head that way someday.... Maybe we will!!!!!

Thanks for sharing the falls. I might even want to stay in the Inn. Do they have a nice restaurant there?????

Have a wonderful Christmas.

Joe: What a neat little park, great captures from Ohio.

Carolyn Ford said...

Wow! That is a quick change! Both are splendid scenes, though. Nice captures...have a wonderful holiday season.

Tony Letts said...

I do think that sun and snow make a great combination

Martha Z said...

Both views are lovely, wish I could hike there but it is a bit far from California.

Great pictures. Amazing how quickly the scene changed.

The weather can change fast here too. I like the idea of a winter hike in the park. Will you need to wear snowshoes?

SandyCarlson said...

The cave has me intrigued. There are caves around here that were the residences of fabled wanderers. Almost scary to think of going there. Beautiful shots.

Joe: That park is so interesting and your pictures capture it really well.

I will tell Bill about "OLd Man Cave" -- sounds like a perfect place for him to explore ;>)).

Thanks for sharing your adventures and hope you both have a wonderful Christmas.
