Bob and I just got back yesterday from a hiking vacation in southern Ohio. We were gone for a little over a week, and we took a zillion photos. No doubt a few of them will end up here. But for now I want to share a little video that I filmed while Bob was driving between Fort Hill and the Highlands Nature Sanctuary. It’s just a look at the countryside in rural Ross County that seemed so pretty and peaceful.

While we were vacationing our destinations included:
- Sells Park,
- Boord State Nature Preserve,
- Wayne National Forest,
- Moonville Tunnel,
- Big Rock Trails,
- Shawnee State Forest,
- Serpent Mound,
- Fort Hill, and
- Highlands Nature Sanctuary.
As the remnants of hurricane Isaac made their way into the Ohio Valley the humidity hovered near 100%, so the hiking conditions were less than ideal. But things pretty much worked out anyway. I hope everyone here had a wonderful Labor Day weekend, and I look forward to catching up on some of my fellow bloggers’ posts.

Lovely countryside video and white squirrel 🙂 And we’re gonna see more! woohooo!
So wonderful, I can’t wait! Your vacations sound very similar to ours… 🙂
I do think that we have a lot in common… except the alligators that you encounter while hiking would probably scare me silly.
Hee hee!! Once you realize they want to be as far away from you, as you from them — it’s good. And once you know the mating season, of course. As I said to another northern naturalist: you have BEARS!!
