We have had our first frosts, a freeze, and even
a few snow flurries here in the Hocking Hills area.
But since the first of November we have been
experiencing our Indian Summer. It has
been in the 70's with gorgeous blue skies and sunshine.
Knowing it would not last I took advantage of the
mild weather to take a walk, with camera in hand
to our local "Ash Cave" which is in the Hocking Hills
State Park area and only about two and a half miles
from my home.
The drought that we have been experiencing made
for a very dry walk with no water cascading over
the falls above Ash Cave and into the basin floor
and creek that runs through the park as you can see
in the picture below.
I was able to get some pictures with a little of the
touches of Fall that was still hanging on in the cave area.
Hocking Hills is a gorgeous park with giant Pine trees
and beautiful rock formations.
When you live amongst scenes such as these,
sometimes you take it all for granted.
But that day while walking through the area with
the showers of golden leaves falling around me
there was no way to ignore the serenity and the
beauty and the feeling of being glad to be alive
to enjoy it all.
Here are some more pictures of my walk through
Ash Cave State Park.
