East of Cincinnati – Not Too Far

“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.”

L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

I don’t want to wax too philosophic or nostalgic here, but it’s amazing what you find when you just look around.  I think maybe, too often, we forget what we have in our own back yard.

Sometimes, people remind us of that, and I have a friend who does.  I have the great pleasure to know a woman who is so giving of herself that she takes the time to show me and my friends something of her passion.  That being local waterfalls.

She’s Tina Karle and she is the author of a number of books concerning the subject.   I have two in my collection and they are the most comprehensive, if not the only, resource available on their subjects:

  1. “200 Hikeable Waterfalls of Ohio”
  2. 120 Waterfall Hikes Around Cincinnati Ohio

This weekend and last have been rather magical and visiting and photographing these local treasures has been quite a treat.  Many thanks to Tina for loads of information and direction and I hope you like the photos.
