Moonville and Kings Tunnels Lake Hope State Park Ohio

Here are two of my favorite spots to visit even though there are no minerals or fossils specifically to find. Although Melanterite has been reported at Kings Tunnel. (Last visit I did see some white crusts on the wall timbers that probably was Melanterite. Not really collectible. I'll try to take a photo on my next visit later this summer.
