Here are scenes of Clifton Gorge, the raging rapids, some cool fungi, and the falls. We saw many Canada geese, and a couple of huge blue herons flying over the water! In one photo you can see a large cascading mass of escaped forsythia hanging from a cliff. Wildflowers were growing in masses everywhere.
After our hike, we stopped in to eat at the historic Clifton Mill, a vintage water-powered gristmill built in 1802 to take advantage of the gorge’s natural water power. We could see the covered bridge from our window. (The alstroemeria on the tables was real.)
