Great shots Joe. That looks like every hollow in Hocking County doesn't it? LOL!
The canals sounds like fun. I road one up by Roscoe Village or somewhere. Anyway the mosquitoes like to ate us alive.

I am with you about being easier walking at the bottom of the gorge.

I went on a tramp, at one stage, despite the water, some of use found walking in the ten inch water easier than walking in the rocks and bush.
