Trip to Hocking Hills

I didn’t write for a few days because my husband and I went on a mini vacation to the Hocking Hills area of Ohio. It is beautiful country with tons of state parks, nature preserves, hiking trails, caves, etc. We also had some fun looking up haunted places in the area (I’m always hoping to see a ghost, but didn’t have any luck this time).

We had a great time, although there was still a lot of stuff closed in the area due to Covid. We had to eat in our car several times due to restaurant dining areas being closed. And we got kicked out of one state park that was closed (we didn’t know that of course), but the ranger was nice and just told us to get out instead of ticketing us or anything bad.

Here are a few of my fave pics from the trip:

We found this little guy in the middle of a country back road. We chased him off the road. I hope his mama came to get him soon after!

This large rat snake crossed our path on a nature trail. He wasn’t friendly lol, but we were still thrilled to see him.

This is the coolest pic from the ghost hunts. That rainbow orb is super weird. Especially since their hadn’t been any rain whatsoever that day. It didn’t show up on any other pictures. This was an old asylum turned into a museum. Sadly they were closed, so we couldn’t go inside 😦

This stain image in one of the limestone cliffs reminded me so much of Anubis. It just needed to be black lol.

Me posing at Ash Cave (the state park we got thrown out of later lol). This cave was a huge amphitheater-style structure that was so cool. In the past it was used for ancient Native American rituals and was even used as a Christian church many years ago.

  1. I wondered where you were. That looks like a great mini break. I’m not a fan of creepy crawlies but I’m glad you enjoyed them. The ones that I meet at the park are usually smaller, cuter and happy to have guests. As a result, I try not to take unsupervised naps in the grass. πŸ˜‚πŸŒΊ

  2. Despite Covid, it looks like you and your husband made the most out of your trip. Living about an hour, I’ve been to the Hills a few times or have driven through it on my way to other destinations. Ash Cave is a great stop, and it isn’t too challenging of a walk. If you return in the future, you can hopefully see more, especially Old Man’s Cave.
