When people think of Ohio, they usually think of farm country. What a lot of people do not realize is that southern, especially southeastern Ohio, is anything but. It is really very much Appalachia, and it is beautiful.
We stayed in a little cabin just outside of Logan, OH. It was a tiny little thing with a lofted bedroom and a jacuzzi tub and fire pit out back.
|Old Man's Cave|
From there we hiked to Cedar Falls. It was a 3 mile hike or so, and it was very, very hot on Saturday. We're talking 100 degrees hot. And humid. But we were prepared and we hiked all the way to Cedar Falls and then found a rock by the water and ate our lunch.
|I think Old Man's Cave? So annoying that I can't remember!|
The next day we hiked the Cantwell Cliffs. This is where I almost died when I hit my head so hard I started sliding over the edge of the cliff. Luckily for me I caught myself when my jaguar instincts kicked in and I put my hand down to stop myself.
After Cantwell Cliffs we went and checked out Ash Cave. One of the biggest rock formations in the park, it is really, really cool.
All in all it was a great weekend of being outside and just being with each other. Sometimes I think we need that, especially with him being gone so much and our summers always being so busy with travelling around to see people.
It is hard to believe that it's been four years since we got married. It's been basically a decade since we started dating. For crying out loud my littlest sister was in middle school and now she's all grown up with a real person job. Crazy how time flies.
I had no way of predicting how much would change in the last four years. We've lived in three houses, Charlie has had two jobs, I rode my bike across the USA, we've been to four different countries, we've fought, we've laughed and we've slowly learned what it means to be married and how to give and take. Who knows what the next four years will bring us. I can't wait to find out:)
"Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a, shoebox of photographs
With sepia toned loving.
Love is the answer,
At least for most of the questions in my heart,
Like why are we here? Where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving,
I'll tell you one thing it's always better when we're together."
