Autumn at Clifton Gorge

Part of the impetus for the outing was to test drive a sports car I’ve been working on for several weeks. Not to mention that autumn always seem to slip away before we realize what’s happened so better get out and enjoy! Also, Clifton Gorge is among Ohio’s more unique and beautiful natural areas. Equipped with sufficient justification, off we went to take advantage of one of the several beautiful days we’ve had recently.

Below is some of what we saw.
