Unglaciated Allegheny Plateau
The Unglaciated Allegheny Plateau is located in an arc around southeastern Ohio into western Pennsylvania
and West Virginia. This area is a dissected plateau, characterized by sandstone, shale, and many coal seams.
One of the most spectacular and scenic areas in this region is located in southeast Ohio, and is known as the Hocking Hills region. This area, similar to but smaller than the Red River Gorge in the Cumberland Plateau in
Kentucky, features cliffs, rock shelters and waterfalls.
Glaciated Allegheny Plateau
The Glaciated Allegheny Plateau is that portion of the Allegheny Plateau that lies within the area covered by
the last glaciation. As a result, this area of the Allegheny Plateau has lower relief and more gentle slopes than the relatively rugged Unglaciated Allegheny Plateau.
The major cities on the Glaciated Allegheny Plateau are Akron and Youngstown.
Glacial till plains
The Hocking Hills is a scenic area of Ohio, primarily in Hocking County, that features cliffs, gorges, rock
shelters, and waterfalls. The relatively extreme topography in this area is due to the Blackhand Sandstone, a particular formation that is thick, hard and weather-resistant, and so forms cliffs. See 1800hocking.com [ Travel Guide, Hocking Hills & Logan Area Lodging, Dining, Attractions & More ].

The Great Black Swamp, or simply Black Swamp, was a glacially-caused wetland in northwest Ohio and
northeast Indiana, that existed from the end of the Wisconsin glaciation until the late 19th century. See Black Swamp Conservancy

Situated in the undulating hills and valleys of the Western Reserve, the city of Akron began as one of the first

Bessie is a name given to a sea monster in Lake Erie by the locals. It has been spotted since 1817, but many
sightings have been occurring in the past thirty years. Bessie is reported to be snake-like and 9-12 m [ 30-40
ft ] long with a grayish color. The creature is blamed for an attack in 1992 that killed three people. The
