Day 319: Something Beautiful—Yellow Springs

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

After I moved to Ohio, I asked people to share places they felt were beautiful, inspiring—good places to paint. The closet was Yellow Springs. A liberal artist’s community with a ws creekstoried history of progressive activity, it is home to yello spAntioch College (private liberal arts college) and Clifton Gorge. Some friends and I took in a walk at the gorge, a stroll through the downtown artisans, and a memorable lunch at The Winds Cafe. The 268 preserve boasts one of the finest examples of post-glacier canyon cutting. The gorge abounds in scenic views including the yellow spring itself. A beautiful walk under beautiful blue skies. A perfect way to view the last leaves before they fell.
