Midwest Tour - 5/15/09
Today was spent at a major ham radio convention, so I'll send you a picture from yesterday's trip to Hocking Hills State Park in SE Ohio. While most of Ohio is relatively flat, as one approaches the Appalachian region, it becomes more hilly. This state park - actually comprised of a chain of parks - stretched along a winding series of canyons, includes multiple waterfalls, caves, alcoves and small streams. It reminds me a great deal of some of the temperate rain forests along the Pacific coast. Being overcast, the day today was perfect for photographing waterfalls and forest landscapes. In fact, driving east from Indiana, we were following the trailing edge of a system of thunderstorms, which filled the streams and waterfalls nicely. Shown is the Lower Old Man Cave Waterfall.
