Hocking Hills has a rich history. A unique geological area of Ohio formed by glaciers centuries before and honed to a perfect beauty by water, wind and sun.

This is a discovery thread to gauge the interest in gathering for a very cold, probable snowy shoot in the Hocking Hills Park Area. Initial thoughts are to rent out Fox Glove Retreat, it actually sleeps 16 people, large and spacious w/ kitchen, baths, bedrooms, hot tub for washing prints of course. http://www.foxglovelodge.com/

First thought was to wrap it into the weekend before Valentineís Day Feb 11-13 2011. Some real advanced commitment might be needed to make this happen and to split the cost of this place, but it would give us a shared are for viewing prints, group cooking, and a base camp for excursions to places like Rock House (my favorite) , Ash Cave, Old Manís Cave, Rock Bridge and many waterfalls. http://www.hockinghills.com/parks.html

We could also have some other date and or find separate cabins, hotel rooms or frigid ground pounding camping. Logan Ohio is 12 miles north of the area for hotels but there are close to 375+ cabins for rent in the Hocking area. More information here. http://www.hockinghills.com/index.html Look at lodging.

State Park website is here:

So, we have some time. Iíll see about posting some of my photos from past trips there to entice one and all to join us. If we truly have enough interest we can go for a large gathering place like Fox Glove but we would need advanced reservations in place with deposit.

Until then lets adapt to the cold and mourn the loss of summer and meet in Detroit !!!
