Adventure

The Yellow Spring

As I said in yesterday’s post, I took a day trip to Yellow Springs with two of my friends earlier this week. I had been to Yellow Springs two times before, but my friends had never been. After we walked around the downtown (which you can see pictures of here for my last adventure and here for the Street Fair), we took a little hike in the woods to find the Yellow Spring. I actually hadn’t seen the spring, so I was excited to explore it! After getting directions from their information center (located along the bike trail outside of the downtown) we set off to find it. We thought we found “the spring” twice before we actually found the real one because we weren’t exactly sure what we were looking for. The first three are in order of what we saw and the last is the actual spring.

It was such a nice day for us to explore! It was a little chilly at times, but overall very comfortable for still being “winter” (spring officially starts today – Happy Spring Equinox y’all!). It happened to be pretty muddy in the woods, so we got a little dirty climbing around everywhere and it was totally worth it. See that random bridge we are standing and the other two below it? There were three bridges that weren’t attached to anything and didn’t really go anywhere. We weren’t sure why they were like that and the picture with me standing up shows how tilted over one of the bridges was – it was like a weird illusion. It was a lot of fun to explore Yellow Springs again. I hope to visit again over the summer and ride my bike again (you can see my last bike ride in Yellow Springs here) and maybe attend the street fair for the second time.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
