I have been trying to explore some of the scenic areas close to home; Lancaster, Ohio and it’s hard to go wrong with State Parks and the Hocking Hills area of Ohio
So For:: SCENIC SUNDAY
First, a very small waterfall for my friend Betsy and her husband at Joyful Reflections
Top left photo shows some of the primitive campsites. The other photos are taken from the Fire Tower I liked the green in the bottom right photo.
Big trees make big Shadows. Is there just a hint of a rainbow in the center photo just to the right of the fire tower? About 400 feet from the fire tower there are several “Backpack” campsites. You also have the North Country National Scenic Trail, the Buckeye Trail, and the American Discovery Trail. That should be enough trails for anyone. LOL
Top photo shows General Store at main campground,center and bottom photo one of the shelter houses near the fire tower,right photo ranger station,and left photo shows the road exiting the park. Tar Hollow is Ohio's third largest state forest, containing 16,120 acres. I spent several hours at the park and didn’t see another soul other than the park ranger who kindly answered several of my questions.
This photo shows the shadowy dam. You might ask yourself where is the lake. I’m saving that for Watery Wednesday and I think you will be surprised to find out what is or isn’t behind the dam. Also, if you would like to get some first hand info on the North Country Trail check out Sharkbytes at My Quality Day blog. She has hiked the entire trail. Oh My
