    Hocking Hills 10-21-12

    Anyone interested in heading to the Hocking Hills this Sunday? I'm planning on going to Conkle's Hollow and maybe Cedar Falls.

    Hi Jeff,
    Good Call. Hocking Hills is a wonderful place this time of year. I wish I could go, my grandson's birthday party is on Sunday, he will be 2.

    If you go as far as Cedar Falls, do go to Rock House! I do not know if you have ever been there or not but besides the colors of the trees, Rock house is a wonderful cave / rock house.

    Also Rock Bridge is a wonderful area. A long walk up two long hills, but if you want waterfalls, a 90+ foot natural rock span and colorful fall leaves you will want to schelp the equipment up the trail. (take water) Rock Bridge is off Rt 33 just before you get to Logan heading in from the west. Info here: http://ohiodnr.com/tabid/1692/Default.aspx

    Always bring your wide angle lenses, besides your normal or tele ones. Else you will get to the Rock Bridge or Rock House and it will hit you like a rock. ( A Pun? )

    Have not set a date for the Frozen Film shoot in 2013 yet at Hocking Hills. But hope to do so soon, so maybe we can go shooting yet down there.

    Thanks for the info, Lee! I've never been to the Rock House or Rock Bridge so I'll put them on the list.

    Hopefully I can make the Frozen Film shoot this year. My work schedule has been pretty crazy this year so who knows?

    Not bad. We only made it to Conkle's Hollow. Didn't haul the RBeast out, just the 1DsMkII so I can't post the photos. I'll need to go back now that I have feel for where I need to be and when I need to be there to get the shots I really want. That rim trail is quite a hike for a fat midget like me!

    Its great down there. I started going when I was 17, now all the trails kick my butt. Maybe why I love it in the winter, one has to walk real careful and slow in ice and snow conditions.

    One or mabe two excursions a day at most in tough conditions, and never alone. My kind of old man speed.

    Your right, there are limits and one can only get away with being stupid here and there.
    Glad you got to go.
