Hocking Hills Autumn Splendor
A quick two-day mid-week trip to Hocking Hills State Park for hiking followed by soaking in a hot tub with girlfriends was just what the doctor ordered! Located in Southeastern Ohio, 2 1/2 hours from Cincinnati, the rugged cliffs, breathtaking gorges, cascading waterfalls, and flourishing forests of Hocking Hills State Park, afford visitors a pristine outdoor wonderland. Our first hike was to Old Man’s Cave. The well-marked one mile round trip trail, includes both man-made and natural steps. The view from inside the mouth of the wide cave looks down onto a small stream and stone bridge…
Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year to visit this park…
Travel Diary: Washington, D.C. – Day 2 continued
George Washington’s former plantation, Mount Vernon, offers a variety of interesting and historical sites for all ages! After touring the Mansion and gardens, my husband and I stopped at one of the outbuildings on the grounds where a woman portrays Martha Washington and stays in character, answering questions from the crowd. She was very entertaining and knowledgeable!
At one point in time, there were 316 slaves living at Mount Vernon. They were freed after George Washington’s death, which he directed in his Last Will and Testament.
