We started off in Conkle's Hollow so my parents could come along, since it's a paved, short hike and usually not as crowded as some of the other Hocking Hills spots. As it was November, there were still some remnants of snow and ice from the day before and it was quite chilly.

After Conkle's Hollow my parents headed back to the vacation rental we were staying at the the kids proceed back up the road to Old Man's Cave, which I had been to in ages. And boy has it changed since the last time I was there. It was also super crowded, in comparison to Conkle's Hollow. We stopped into the visitor's center for a second, so everyone could go to the restroom and whatnot. While waiting on the others I spotted these guys and couldn't resist taking their picture.
