When the sun shines into the back of Ash Cave the colors of the rock present a lustrous canvas of abstract art. Ash Cave in the Hocking Hills of Ohio is so named for the ash left by the many concil fires of the Native Americans. The horseshoe-shaped cave is massive; measuring 700 feet across, 100 feet deep, and 90 feet high. A small stream of the East Fork of Queer Creek cascades over the rim into a small plunge pool below.
