Another Glimpse of Hocking Hills

It had been a full year since our last escapade off the beaten path to Hocking Hills State Park on our way to and from Chicago and home.  Because Robert and I were able to shove off relatively early that morning, it allowed us to get to our destination just two hours before dark: the perfect, yet a bit more difficult, time for capturing the light on the landscape. Our explorations took us to another section of the park this time, but we hoped it would boast the same excellent photographic opportunities as before. We were not disappointed!

The trail into the canyonPathway along the base of the sheer rock wallsA root's perspective of the trees on the surface

Fading light at the top of the canyon

Looking down . . .. . . and looking up!

Ash Cave

James pauses for a picture"Why look at the camera, when there is so much else to see?"

It's still a long way up!It's all about perspective

Driving back out to the highway 

The end of a "gorgeous" adventure!

    What a great place for photography!! It seems every picture deserves a 30-minute analysis to fully appreciate! I can’t wait to go back with you guys some time in the near future.

    It truly amazes me what beauty results as millions of forms of life that use the destructive forces of nature to their advantage. Reminds me of American Capitalism.

    Just as we stood in awe of God’s creation, so may our hearts stand in awe of God’s Word (Psalm 119:161). To the heart, God’s Word is just as complex and awe inspiring as nature is to the human eye.
