I have been to visit Hocking Hills State Park near Logan, Ohio several times. So far, these visits had always been between spring and fall. There are multiple caves, small canyons, and waterfalls in the area. I had heard that it was also a very nice winter destination, so my wife and I planned to try that out during the second week of February 2021. We had made a booking for a cabin several weeks in advance, and at that time, the forecast was for not-so-wintery weather, well above freezing. As we got closer, however, the forecast changed and it was going to be much colder: below freezing nearly all the time, which is much better for ice formations, of course.
We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and settled into our cabin. There are several, separate areas that make up the park, and on the first day, one area that we visited was Cedar Falls.
The pathway and stairs were heavily covered by ice, making it rather hazardous, but we had ice cleats for our boots. All along, there was ice emerging from low cliff walls and from any flowing water.
When we got to the falls, there was a full-on winter scene with most of the stream being frozen, and icicles hanging all over. I liked this scene from under one of the rock overhangs at the entrance to the falls area.
