A bunch of friends and I went to Hocking Hills this weekend with several of our Near West Side neighbors. That’s right: solid urban communities do things like take trips together! You know, when we’re not selling drugs and prostituting.
I didn’t take my phone to take photos on the trails for fear of dropping it in the snow or cracking it during one of my many slips on the ice, so I don’t have any photos of the beautiful ice formations, waterfalls, or caves. You can find those online anyway and photos don’t do it justice.
I do have photos, however, of my hair freezing:
When we left Sunday, we stopped in the little town of Logan, Ohio to check out some of the old architecture.
OK, someone drop some of these houses into my neighborhood at a price I could afford, right?! The top house (the beautiful Gothic/Victorian) is for sale for $104K.
Following all of that, Alex and I stopped in Columbus for lunch. I’ve never been to the German Village neighborhood and I really loved it. Small streets and cute brick housing complete with a book store, coffee shops, and little restaurants nearby a great park is basically my idea of paradise. Boy, do I sound like a yuppie or what!
In one day, we went on a hike to Ash Cave (a true natural wonder right here in Ohio), checked out a quaint town with beautiful homes, and visited a large city (two if you count Cleveland). Ohio isn’t so bad.
