Hocking Hills, Ohio

Laurel, Charlie, Mom, and I drove to Hocking Hills – kind of southeast Ohio – for a couple days. The forest there is lush and beautiful, and Charlie kept saying, “This is like Costa Rica!” We even saw moss growing on trees. I asked Laurel if we’d ever seen moss in Colorado. She said, “I saw some under the hose once at our Castle Rock house.” We stayed in a cottage at Bear Run Inn which is owned and operated by Bud & Marcia Myers who just happen to have lived a few years of the 1960’s in Colorado Springs and were Lutheran missionaries before that. Bud took us and the other guests on a hayride Tuesday evening and we got to feed hay to his beautiful horses and see some of his farm.

  1. So green!! But after all these years in Colorado, green makes me think, “Bugs!!”
    I’m curious: how wide a variety of pencil sharpeners did you see?

    • I have purchased some anti-itch cream, Suzanne; the mosquitoes in Ohio are robust and plentiful. As for the pencil-sharpener museum…it was actually even sillier than I expected. Some guy started buying pencil sharpeners at Wal-Mart and other stores when he retired and ended up collecting 3,500. There were numerous newspaper articles about him, and he was honored by the Ohio legislature.
