Gorgeous Gorge

Looking north at Council Rock where the black hand petroglyph used to be that gave the sandstone and the Gorge its name.
Just sharing some more Black Hand Gorge photos.  This really is among the most beautiful places in Ohio, and I'm glad it's so near my home I can visit anytime.  Fall is the best time to visit though.

A smaller of the quarries on the grounds.

My cameo.
A rockful reminder that a railroad line used to run through here.
The eastern entrance to the old railroad "deep cut" is near the quarry and Council Rock. 

It's what's not here that's great to see.  The fences that used to line this path and mar the natural beauty are gone.
