This month I chose a fall picture from Rose Lake in the Hocking Hills. Next month will be the last month for the calendar pages unless I get enough response from people to keep it going into 2017. The link for the calendar page is below.
The dining restaurant at the Hocking Hills Lodge at Old Man’s Cave is a new location to purchase two Hocking Hills books. (Until it burned down in 2016)
You can purchase a copy of “The Best Kept Secrets of the Hocking Hills” guide to the Hocking Hills and “Get Back to Nature” an Hocking Hills inspired adult coloring book at the lodge. Stop in and enjoy a tasty meal at the dining room located in the Hocking Hills Lodge that is conveniently located close to one of the most popular parks in the Hocking Hills.
Make sure you pick up your guide to the Hocking Hills before you start exploring the Hocking Hills. The new edition has several maps of the area to help you get around. And don’t forget to pack your coloring pencils so that you can relax, unwind and color your way to calm in the Hocking Hills with “Get Back to Nature” adult coloring book.

I just found out that the guidebook, “The Best Kept Secrets of the Hocking Hills” and “Get Back to Nature” the adult coloring book inspired by the Hocking Hills are both available for purchase on the online site of Barnes & Noble bookstore. The titles above are links that will take you to the the Barnes & Noble website.
This month I picked a fall picture of Rockbridge State Nature Preserve. It is the largest natural rock bridge in the state of Ohio. It rises 45 feet above the gorge below and the 100-foot Black Hand sandstone span can be walked on from above. It is located off U.S. Route 33 between State Routes 374 and 180 on Dalton Road.
This month as my new adult coloring book will be published I am celebrating by announcing a coloring page calendar page. Enjoy!
I grew up with Smokey the Bear and when I had the opportunity to create a public service announcement using Smokey to help prevent forest fires I jumped at it. Click on the link below to color this page yourself, with your kids or grandchildren. Enjoy!
Fall officially starts on the 22nd this month so I chose a fall picture at Lake Hope State Park. To learn more about Lake Hope and Tar Hollow State Parks check the link below:
Also in the area is the Hope School House and Hope Furnace. Read about it here.
To get this months calendar: September 2016.
My newest project is in its final phases. I will publish on Amazon a new adult coloring book called, “Get Back to Nature”. It is inspired by the Hocking Hills of Ohio and will have drawings of three Hocking Hills State Parks for adult colorists. I am very excited about this newest direction. All the pages are hand drawn as many colorists desire this option.
Have a Happy Labor Day!
This month I am sharing a 1941 Classic Map of the Hocking Hills. I have updated it while keeping it’s classic look. I am using this map in a new publication that I am in the process of publishing now. It is an adult coloring book inspired by the Hocking Hills.
All the pages are hand drawn and now I need to color one of my pages for the cover. I have not used my colored pencils since I was a art student. It should be fun.
I am also starting a new website about adult coloring pages and will keep you informed about all the latest news next month.
In the mean time, enjoy the map. I found the illustrations at the top to be very interesting.
I hope you enjoy it!

This month I will feature the Devil’s Bathtub at Old Man’s Cave State Park. The plaque to the right is what is beside the bridge where it is located. The bathtub does not go down but merely under the bridge and exits on the other side of the bridge.
This is the link for this months page: July 2016 Calendar Page
This is a link to an Old Man’s Cave State Park Map: Old Man’s Cave State Park
And for a link to all the State Parks in the area and surrounding region:
This is the perfect link to keep when purchasing my guidebook, “The Best Kept Secrets of the Hocking Hills”. I did not include any trail maps in this publication as the state does such a good job of providing this information free of charge.
So if you want to introduce someone to the Hocking Hills, the book can be purchased at Amazon.com and make sure you send them the maps link above. Or if they have no computer you can print out what you think they might need.
You will see a comment on Amazon stating the lack of maps in my guidebook. This was done intentionally. So now you know how to get these maps.
Thanks for your support. It is greatly appreciated.
