Old Man’s Cave is a recess cave in a gorge in Ohio’s Hocking Hills State Park. Betsy and I have been to the park a couple of times and have enjoyed hiking down to the cave. The park contains several waterfalls which had very little water when we visited before, so we went back there in early March hoping to find more flowing water. We found more water, but we also found a great deal of ice, which was unexpected.
The walls of the gorge were covered in ice in many places, which was very beautiful but made it tricky to get down to the floor of the gorge.
Once I got down to the floor of the gorge, it was fascinating to see the huge columns of ice reaching from an overhang to the base of the cliff. In the photo above you can even see some blue ice in the column.
