Blue Rock. Ohio
I picked Grandpa up in Zanesville and we got the heck out of Dodge, rambled down 146 East until we turned South to follow the ridges towards and through the Blue Rock State Forest area. Somewhere on Ridge View Road we got enchanted. This must surely be one of the lowest populated spreads in Ohio.
The woods are lush. There are quite a few abandoned homesteads and we went through one little ghost town. There were about nine empty falling down houses there, one still lived in barely, and a church which looked alive. Beautiful country, the hills almost look like mountains. By the way, what determines when a hill turns into a mountain? Anybody out there know?
