Getting Out While The Getting’s Good (#627)

Last weekend northeast Ohio had a respite from Arctic temps and gray days.  And with it  came the desire to get outdoors for a wild ramble.

This part of the state has several state parks within a 20 mile radius.  My granddaughter, Arianna and I were looking for something a bit different from a regular walk in the woods.

We found an awesome place at Ledges State Park and spent two and a half hours hiking up and down, over and through hundreds of ledges, ravines and caves that make up this unique area.

Getting outdoors, having an adventure and making memories…….

    Annie, this reminds me of a place called The Rock Garden in Loyalsock S.P. in north central PA. I spent a day last summer crawling over and through the same type of crevices. I love the tree roots, mosses, and ferns that adorn the rock faces. Great pictures. Miss you!

    Love the pictures. I am always amazed how the trees sit on top of huge boulders and still manage to get their roots down to find soil. What a fantastic place. Wish I had been hiking with you. The memories you will always have of the wonderful day with Arianna will last a life time. Such fun!

    Wonderful place – that is the kind of nature I love. Me and Totti would have enjoyed it immensely hiking with you!
