( A GREAT WAY TO SPEND SOME QUALITY TIME IS TO CHECK OUT MY WORLD TUESDAY)
In the Hocking Hills we have Clear Creek Metro Park. An area of scenic cliffs and rugged rock formations. This is part of MY WORLD. To discover more parts of our interesting world click on the link or logo.
There is an interesting area I have been wanting to explore. In a previous post I have talked about and shown photos of the Thomas Cabin and the Mathias Cabin. These two cabins are separated by a ridge that runs between them. The top of the ridge is about 100 feet higher in elevation than the two cabins.
For this post I am going to start at the high point of the hike and work backwards.
This is the highest elevation of the hike. At my back is another cliff about forty feet high and no easy way to climb (and I’m not prepared to climb it today anyway). I am standing on the spine of the ridge and it falls off to my front, right, and left.
Top left photo shows the cliff at my back. Top right photo shows skyline and the two bottom photos show the woods to the left and right.
A close up of the Black Hand Sandstone that predominates in this area. We will now start to head back down. (That sand stone is just a little weathered which is how I feel today)
After going about 100 feet I found a level spot bottom left photo. I sat down by a tree took a couple photos of the sky through the trees and took a nap. (The sun was out and I did dress warmly) and down we go ( Love those Gnarly Trees )
Top left photo (where I had been) then down—down—and looking back up.
The top two photos show what I think is the remnants of an old “spring house” Just another view below left

The sun was out and the days are getting longer. If I just weighed about 30 pounds less than I do now this hike would have been much easier. You know in the spring I’m going to have to climb that last cliff and explore the rest of the ridge between the cabins. As Always Thanks for stopping by….
