Where is Hocking Hills you may ask?
In the region of Southeastern Ohio there is an area known as Hocking Hills in Logan, Ohio. Hocking Hills is an area of the Allegheny Plateau in Ohio, primarily in Hocking County. The area features jagged cliffs, stunning gorges, unique rock shelters, and beautiful waterfalls. The relatively extreme topography in this area is due to the Blackhand Sandstone. The Blackhand Sandstone received its name from the Native American graphics on the formations near Newark, Ohio. The Blackhand Sandstone is thick, hard and weather-resistant, which results in high cliffs and narrow, deep gorges.
