LedgesPosted: November 12, 2011
It’s official. We had our first snow of the season. We woke up to a very light dusting of snow yesterday along with some chilly, blustery weather. It was a big change, that’s for sure. I had to haul out the winter coat, hat, and mittens. That was due to the temperature and the wind, not the snow. The snow didn’t hang around for long.
Prior to the big shopping trip yesterday, M and I went for a hike in the Twinsburg Ledges area where I managed to take a series of strange (to me) photographs. Not intentionally. They just turned out that way.
The Ledges Trail in Twinsburg is a short 1.1 mile loop. It passes through a wetland area with a long boardwalk to protect the fens and bogs, and by a series of sandstone ledges covered in lichens and moss. You can also visit Glacier Cave, a grotto in the rock wall with rock fins that rise up to 70 feet.
It’s a pretty trail, with lots of green from the mosses, lichens, and ferns. I would love to hike it in the spring when everything is green. I half expected to see a fairy pop up from behind one of the ferns or an elf sitting up on the ledges at the top of the cave.
I’ll have more for you from the Ledges Trail soon. I’m spending time with friends this evening. Hence the short post. Thanks for stopping by. I hope your Saturday has been a good one. 🙂
