Nancy and I had spent the first few days of our annual fall foliage trip exploring the Hocking Hills Region of Ohio which includes Hocking Hills State Park. Our main interest was finding waterfalls and covered bridges along with hiking a few of the many trails found within the park. We also sought out a couple of waterfalls located in western Ohio near the Indiana border.
Rock Mill Falls - View 1: Nancy captured this nice image of the Rock Mill waterfalls, covered bridge, and old mill which is located near Lancaster Ohio.
