This evening we returned from our three-night anniversary/spring-break trip to a cabin in the Hocking Hills.


This trip welcomed spring in. When we left Canton on Thursday afternoon, there was a tiny bit of snow flying through the air and we were wearing our winter coats. When we came back it was raining and we were wearing our spring jackets.

The first thing I learned on this trip is that even when two online map sites say the same thing, don't trust them not to consider a dirt four-wheeler trail to be suitable for automobile traffic. The second thing I learned on this trip is that when asking directions in farm country, and the answer starts with "first go back into town," be sure to confirm (a) which town they mean, and (b) how to get back there. But we did get there.

The cabin turned out to be a bit less isolated and secluded than we'd anticipated -- it overlooks the road to the Bear Run Inn, so we had about as much traffic noise as we get in the suburbs at home. But at least it was up above the road on a hill, surrounded by trees. It might be more secluded once the leaves grow back in.

I only took a few pictures, most of them on our walk around the property, plus a few experimental ones. Here are the first two pictures; I might post more later.

There was a TV there, but this is all that was ever on the screen



When we left the cabin I turned on the cell phone for the first time in three days and discovered four messages waiting -- at least three more than I might've expected. Turns out my mother had tried to reach me about going to Columbus for Easter dinner, and got quite worried when I didn't respond. Eventually she'd figured out what was going on though. I was sure I'd emailed her about our plans....
Mood:: 'tired' tired
