A Spring Hike at Clifton Gorge

On Saturday, May 23, 2009, the Explorers met for a sunny morning hike through scenic Clifton Gorge near Yellow Springs, Ohio.

Clifton Gorge is a state nature preserve that encloses one of the most impressive geological sites in western Ohio. The gorge is the result of water flowing from melting glaciers to the north of the site at the end of the last Ice Age. This water began cutting a channel through the top layers of rock, and it is the nature of this type of rock that gave Clifton Gorge its current appearance.
