Congratulations to Jannette Quackenbush for receiving the 2018 Heart of Hocking award! The Heart of Hocking award recognizes a person or group who devotes numerous volunteer hours and has been loyal in providing high quality customer service. She has helped with numerous park events, such as the Maple Syrup Festival, the Frontier trail hike, the Sweethearts hike and Christmas in Ash Cave. Her company, 21 Crows Productions, has for years supplied fun ghost equipment and her expertise for the popular Haunted Hocking series of hikes, which draws in hundreds of hikers. She has published many books about ghost stories, with several of them highlighting Hocking Hills State Park and southeast Ohio, as a way to bring tourists to this region. Her work as a publisher, editor and photographer have been used in several brochures and displays about Hocking Hills, and she also maintains several websites highlighting this area. Jannette is pictured with ODNR Director Jim Zehringer at Cedar Falls, the halfway point of the 53rd annual Hocking Hills Winter Hike. @ohstateparks #OhioStateParks #HockingHills #HeartOfHockingAward #WinterHike #OptOutside #HikeOhio #ExploreOhio #OhioFindItHere

Video has been uploaded! Link in bio! Sorry for 720. Program I used to edit wouldn’t allow me to export in 1080. On to find a new program for editing!
Looks like snow photos will be coming to an end here pretty soon. But next up, waterfalls & spring photos!
For those who hiked the 6 miles to Ash Cave today for the 53rd annual Hocking Hills Winter Hike, the view was well worth it! The ice formation pictured on the floor at Ash Cave was as wide as the length of a school bus! It was absolutely stunning. Huge thanks to the more than 4,500 people who hiked with us at Hocking Hills State Park today! This year was certainly a year to remember! @ohiodnr #OhioStateParks #HockingHills #HikeOhio #WinterHike #ExploreOhio #OhioFindItHere #NoFilter
Cedar Falls was absolutely beautiful today for the 53rd annual Hocking Hills Winter Hike! We wanted to give a huge thank you to the more than 4,500 hikers who came out today and to all of our staff and volunteers who worked at this event!

When you take a picture you are capturing a moment in time that will never exist again. You are offering a glimpse into how you view the world.
I finally present you a picture from my Canon!

Quite the unusual sighting this morning! Such a cute little guy. Not the best shot but I wanted to share :-)) -
QOD: Mountains, Cities, or Beaches? 🏔

Standing in awe. So much love for this beautiful planet of ours.
Be like a tree. Stay grounded. Connect with your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before your break. Enjoy your unique natural beauty. Keep growing. -
This beautiful view is out of our front window across the road. Every evening I gaze out, and think to myself, "someday I'm going to capture this", and this evening, I did. ❤️
I was challenged by @captainookie
to share 5 things about myself. Hmmm. 🤔 Here goes!
1. Growing up, I took voice lessons for nearly 13 years. I was the small-town girl available to sing at your wedding, funeral, or pre-game National Anthem. 🎤🎵
2. In college, I aspired to be a university history professor, but I never pursued education after my BA.
3. I left home when I was 16 to be a Rotary Exchange student to Australia. If my daughter ever wants to leave home at 16...well, over my dead body. 😂🙅♀️
4. From November to March, I ask my husband nearly every day if we can move South. Typically I name Florida or Australia. 😂 #hopeless #notgoodatwinter
5. I'm terribly afraid of bats, tornados, and passing semi-trucks on the highway (I'm the lady driving 80 and leaning to my left 😬). .
