Clifton Gorge

This past Sunday, Pete and I went to Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve. We’ve been there a few times, the first being with his mom and her college roommate, so it holds a very special place in my heart. It’s one of my favorite places to walk, with the sound of rushing water, ferns, limestone, and cliffs. Tons of native plants, although we did see a few invasives. It looks like they are working on restoring the area.

If you need a little relaxation, just listen to the video. Nothing more peaceful (at least to me) than rushing water…
