Winter’s View from Rising Park

This fall Bob and I visited Rising Park in Lancaster, Ohio. The big attraction there is the view from the top of Mount Pleasant. Both of us wanted to see what the view would look like when blanketed in snow, so we went back to take some more photos a week or so ago.

If you look at the top photo you’ll see that I was standing behind a safety rail. It was disheartening to see that there were tracks in the snow up to the edge of the cliff. Especially considering the ice and snow, this seemed like a really bad idea. Enjoy the view, but be safe!

If you are interested in seeing what Rising Park is like in the fall, or you’d like driving directions, check out our earlier post, Viewing Lancaster, Ohio from Mount Pleasant. For information on additional parks in Fairfield County, check out the TrekOhio Guide to Fairfield County.

  1. Wonderful post. I had to look all photos in bigger format, because they are so interesting. My favorite is the Gazebo photo. In Finland we love them and this one is so beautiful beside the pond.
