Geography, Geology, and History, Oh My!

I’m late posting about this particular field trip because we went a couple of weeks ago, but we’ve been busy with more so it’s time to catch up! It’s nice that on days that we need to get outside and be in nature we have so many great opportunities relatively near by.

Two weeks ago we went to Old Man’s Cave, the most popular outdoor draw in Hocking Hills and one of the most popular in the state. This is the first time Emma remembers being there, so she was very drawn to the scenic beauty.
