Tuesday we got up and got to Old Man’s Cave by 9:30 in the morning, taking the “scenic” route. Yes it was “scenic” but it was also kinda scary! Roads that seems to me to one lane roads, but weren’t! We were very happy to see very few cars in the parking lot. Normally we got on the weekend and the place is PACKED! We started down the trail and quickly realized there was NO water in the place!! A few placed had some sitting water but none in the normal places, no waterfalls, it was rather sad to say the least. But we kept going and went a few places we hadn’t been in years. It started out VERY cold and got a little better as the morning went on. I decided that maybe a T-Shirt and fleece shirt weren’t my best option in clothing! As we went down the trails it became more and more busy, and we saw a small bus from the Westerville Senior Center – decided against going down into the main area where all the people had gone and we headed to Cedar Falls.
As we started out at Cedar Falls a couple with 2 cute downs told us to not follow the signs to the parking lot on the way back that it was a hard train and much worse than the trip down – we decided to keep that in mind!! We had never really got to explore Cedar Falls before, the only time we had been before was at the end of a trail we had hiked down the first time we went to Hocking Hills years ago, and we were so tired we just wanted to be done! It was a lot of fun, and since there was no water anywhere we went off trail a few times and at times even on the old trail – I know bad us! It was very pretty down there and they had some nice photo ops!
We got done there and I was HUNGRY – but we needed a few things from Wal-Mart again so we went there and then we headed off to Kroger to get animal “feed”. Dave got a mix of corn, peanuts, and I am not sure what else to put out to try and bring the animals up. We headed back to the cabin, had a roast beef sandwich for lunch, followed by a nap!! We went out to Millstone for dinner, we had been there last time we went down and it was good so we went back! Food was yummy, but the service wasn’t as great this time. We took another scenic route home, past Lake Logan. After our different trips down there I am finally starting to get the hang of where we are going and how to connect the 2!
Tuesday evening we just chilled out, watched the birds, squirrels, and chipmunks in the yard.
