|Another view of Ash Cave.|
When I took a closer look at these boulders, I found...
detritivores that can be quite common in the Appalachian area of Ohio.
A minute after I found it, a British family on vacation passed by on the trail. I called them down and asked if they were interested in seeing an owl, and they jumped on the offer. They got really good looks after the owl took flight, leaving the grandpa to grandkids, along with me, in awe at the impressive bird.
That's another thing about the Hocking Hills. You never know who you're going to meet there. While most visitors are Ohioans, it is still a tourist spot, and on this trip I met people from Britain, along with hearing Spanish and a few Asian languages around me over the course of the four days. The Hocking Hills area of Ohio is a treasure for us Ohioans, along with every other person, and we should actively work to conserve it for future generations.
