Blackjack Cabin and Ash Cave

While at Blackjack cabin we ventured to Ash Cave which is part of Hocking Hills State Park.  There the kids really got muddy, especially Eli.  This cave area is huge, it is suppose to have great acoustics.  Eli took off running when we went around the bend and when he saw the waterfall and HUGE rock sides.  Hezekiah took off climbing and running too.  They are all about an adventure.  It would seriously be awesome if this was our backyard. 

 Here is Ash Cave, you can envision how enormous this is, I am the small figure in the picture above. 

 The Falls are 90 feet high, we hiked up to the top and we also got to see the backside of the waterfall.

 We even captured the kids being kind to each other.  Ha!

Old Man's Cave, Hocking Hills, Ohio

Old Man's Cave was AMAZINGLY beautiful.  It was a land of ice and icicles.  It was cold, but not too cold.  The kids loved finding the ice on top of the water.  Large sheets of ice.  They had seen some ice too in West Virginia when we stopped in Charleston for the night. To Maggie it looked like the land of Frozen.  It was such a fun hike with rock bridges, beautiful little water falls, icicles hanging from ledges.  The kids ran off adventuring on the hike exploring every nook and cranny.  

 This area looked like a Star Wars set for Tatooine. I am sure there were Wookies in that forest too.

 This bridge was extremely cool!

Maggie kept these icicles in the cooler, they finally melted.  I warned her that they would.  Her and Eli also had a collection of rocks that they kept.
