I like to hike

I really do like to hike.  But I am currently on the DL.  So, not chance of a major hike in my near future.  But, as mentioned in my previous post, I HAD to get out and walk a bit.  Or, I fear, I may have gone slightly insane.  Its the way I am.  So, I headed to The Ridges.  I really like it there.  It is currently a spot that is owned by Ohio University.  However, it is the site of a former Mental Institution.  Cool.  You know there's gotta be some spirits lurking there.  Especially in the graveyard. 

There is a hiking trail that I like to go on.  If you are not injured there are lots of steep inclines that are great exercise and one leads to a spot where you can over look the Dairy Barn Arts Center.  Its a gorgeous view.  I went for the simple hike though.  A short trek to the pond, where you can glimpse part of the cemetery on the hills behind the Ridges Buildings. 

Enjoy the photos! (And for today, no narration.  Just enjoy the scenery.)
