This Saturday adventure starts in Lancaster,Ohio (my hometown) and meanders to the Hocking Hills area of Ohio. Heading S.E. on Rt. 33 our first stop is in Logan,Ohio and:
For a charge of about $36.00 Linda and I coasted down the hocking river in a canoe. (Linda did the paddling and I steered) It was about a two hour trip.
The Hocking Hills Canoe Livery rents canoes (duh), Kayaks, and rafts. Notice the rafts in this picture a little partying going on. I was once that young but it has been a couple years. They also have Cabins and private primitive campsites.
In order to get to the start point of our canoe trip ( near Enterprise,Ohio) we took the old bus.
Make sure to say Hi to Sandy the dog that sits in the front seat. After all that work steering the canoe we were hungry.. So off to Laurelville,Ohio and:
This was my first time to the Ridge Inn and was I ever impressed. My wife Linda introduced me to Jo Eaves and her husband David the owners, as we sat outside on the deck. Daniel took our order and all I can say is, the food,service and ambiance was GREAT…
I had the Santa Fe wrap with salad and highlander grog coffee.. Some of the salad fixins come from the garden at the back of the inn.
When we have more time we will stop in and see Jo at her shop:
If your in need of some patio chairs
Right across the street from the restaurant is:
One last item about The Ridge Inn Restaurant: They make there own donuts and are they good…
Laurelville,Ohio also seems to be a crossroads for motorcycle touring in the Hocking Hills
As we leave Laurelville we make a quick stop at the local park
They offer one two and four hour trail rides and seem to be reasonably priced and of course camping is available.
Linda says we will save the trail ride for another day. Sounds good to me…
Mike says for a trail ride one must be a least seven years old. In about six months William will turn seven then all my GRAND CHILDREN will be old enough for a trail ride and a visit to this working ranch
