fall foilageCOSHOCTON – Roughly 700 people had registered for the fall foliage tour by noon on Oct. 17 and this was just the first day for the annual event sponsored by the Coshocton County Ohio State University Extension, Coshocton County Soil & Water Conservation District and Farm Services Agency.

The tour was held Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 17-18 and featured the western section of Coshocton County. One of the stops was Triple R Stables, which hosts Higher Hopes Therapeutic Riding Center. Pictured showing off one of the horses used at the stables are Whitney McMullen and Kimberlin Alton.

Other stops included: The Animal Boutique and Villas, Woodbury Wildlife Area, Camp Echoing Hills, Morris Cattle Company, Allen-Locke Sheep Farm and Rocky Ridge Dairy. Agriculture is the county, state, and nation’s number one industry and each of the stops represent an aspect of the county’s valuable agricultural enterprises.

Many local people volunteer their time, energy and resources to ensure the success of this annual tour. This year was no exception. The 2015 tour brought nearly 1,500 people through the western section of Coshocton County despite the cold weekend weather. These participants represented six states and 28 Ohio counties. In fact, 33 percent of the participants registered for the tour reside outside of Coshocton County.

The 2016 tour will feature northwestern Coshocton County on Oct. 15 and 16. If you have any comments on the 2015 tour, suggestions for the 2016 tour, or would like to serve on the 2016 planning committee, contact Tammi Rogers at 740-622-2265, [email protected] or visit: http://coshocton.osu.edu.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
