Yesterday, of course, was Earth Day. So I spent most of my day in direct sole-to-soul contact with the Earth. (And, if truth be told, a bit of time in butt-to-butte contact during a rest break.)
It was an 8-mile barefoot hike at Tar Hollow.
Tar Hollow sometimes seems like one of the stepchildren when it comes to the parks in southeastern Ohio. It has Great Seal (with its hills on the Great Seal of Ohio) on the west, and Hocking Hills (with its spectacular gorges and caves on the east).
It still makes a great hike, though.
In fact, it makes a pretty challenging hike when it comes to hiking barefoot.
