Come Follow Me Through Hocking Hills and Back

Come follow me, I am your Tour Guide Mason Dixie
Here we are atop of the upper falls
A view of the upper falls
Do you see what I see?
It is called the "Devils Bath" water has formed a whirl pool
Come on so much more to see
If you get tired along the way we can rest,
there are a lot of stairs to climb down
and through
Tight squeeze here suck be sure to suck it in.... =)
Mom and I on a scary bridge
Be sure to duck if you are too tall =)
We are here!! Old Man's Cave
Making my way through the caves
And alas the view from the top
Okay lets go
Are you still following?
Okay there you are.........
Hurry up you have to see this!!
The Lower Falls
and of course I had to make sure the water was safe for everyone
Have you ever swam with a water fall?
Oh yeah, these two came along too.
Time to head back, do you remember the way?
through the tunnels and
up all the stairs.......
along the crick bed
a quick break for a drink
ready again
across the scary bridge
one last look down
made it across
back up more stairs.......
around the bend
one more bridge to cross
and home with my stuffie
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween

What a wonderful place,My dogs would love it there, I bet you were tired out when you got home (but not for long eh!) I noticed that you were on a long leash, are dogs allowed to run free in that lovely place? Are the caves man made?

Thanks for the enthusiastic doggy tour! I've seen this cave in an image but didn't know what it was called so thanks for that too!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey MD,
What a GReat tour guide you are. Your pictures are much better than the ones on the HH website. We didn't know that Ohio had terrain like that. The most interesting thing was seeing our dad's house. We didn't know that the old man lived in a cave. Thanks for the GReat tour.
