Old Man's Cave

In Southeast Ohio there is an area called the Hocking Hills. For my friends in the Midwest they look and feel much like the Ozarks. These hills are foothills of the Appalachians.

There are a number of spectacular gorges carved into the local sandstone by the eons of erosion. One of these formations is called the Old Man's Cave, because of the local legend of an early settler who lived in one of the alcoves as hermit.

What made Old Man's Cave special for us is that it features a number of waterfalls and other water features that made for spectacular photography. Here are a few examples of the formations found there.

Upper Falls

Devil's Bathtub

Lower Falls

These gorges (and the entire region) feature great flora and fauna. More photos from the region to come!
