On the way to Ash Cave

(166:  Looking up.)

After our train ride on Saturday we went to Hocking Hills State Park where we walked the 1/4 mile Ash Cave Gorge trail.  It’s an easy hike, the trail being wheel chair accessible.  One of the things I enjoyed most were the spots of fall color against the background of the gorge walls and the deep, dark green of the hemlocks that line the gorge.  There were not a lot of leaves and colors left after the winds that came with the rain earlier in the day, but there were still some browns and yellows here and there.

In other news…

The snow came down pretty heavily yesterday morning, but didn’t stick.  The ground is still much too warm for that.  Today is another of those gray and gloomy days, with some rain expected.  Temperatures will be back up into the 50’s tomorrow.  It should be a good weekend to finally finish my Winterize the Garden Project.
