Lower Falls at Hocking Hills

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I had to find a new way to get to Hocking Hill’s Lower Falls.  There was so much ice in Old Man’s Cave that we couldn’t use that route to the falls.  It took some doing to get down to the falls, but I think the view was definitely worth it.

This is magnificent!!! Love the turquoise water beneath the falls and there's a lot of surrounding greenery for there be so much ice.

It is great you both are enjoying the same outdoor activities. Just make sure you have safe footing around the falls.

This waterfall was definitely awesome --especially after our crazy hike down those ICY steps to get there.

Love you,

My sister & her husband have spent quite a bit of vacation time in the Hocking Hills, as his sister lived & worked there. They even had their wedding there! It's a gorgeous place, I'd love to see it some day.
Excellent photo, George!

An amazing scene - ice and running water. Love the different colours in the water. Happy belated birthday! Your trip was a worthwhile way to mark the day.

What Karen Sees said...

Definitely worth the walk. This is a lovely scene. I especially like the beautiful green/turquoise water.

Hilda said...

It's lovely, even if it's still partially frozen! Or should I say, because it's still partially frozen.

I think the picture very nicely captured the flow of the waterfall... can literally feel the coolness from the water...

I spend so much time soaking in the beauty of your photography and the sites that you shoot, that it had not even occurred to me that the way might be treacherous. Please be careful. I'm sure you are.

Vineeta Yashswi said...
