Brenda and I were in the mood for a photography adventure today, so we headed down to Hocking County, where there was a level 2 snow emergency, in search of lunch and an opportunity to photograph a frozen waterfall. Making extensive use of the 4-wheel drive on the new truck, we made it to The Inn at Cedar Falls for a delicious lunch, and then proceeded on to Ash Cave which has a 90 foot waterfall.
The Ash Cave area was a winter wonderland.
On the way down the path to the falls, we encountered this beautiful ice formation.
When we entered Ash Cave, we were surprised to find a native drumming group having a Blessing the Earth ceremony, complete with a guy going about waving a feather and burning sage and cedar. It seemed a bit surreal.
The most amazing thing, though, was the frozen waterfall and the mountain of ice below it.
Brenda went and stood next to it to give a sense of perspective and size.
It was a fun and memorable day.
