Hiking Clifty Falls with Cliff

   (5 reviews)

When my wife died, I decided to move back to Indiana, to spend more time with my grandson. Noticing that Cliff seemed despondent, I decided that a fall hike in Clifty Falls State Park was just what he needed. Suspecting that he was gay, it turned out he was, but his affect was related to something else entirely. We learned a lot about each other and the path we took turned out to be metaphorical as well.

A gentle story, during which more about the two main characters are revealed on each turn of the path. I could easily envision the trails they hiked and the beautiful scenery along the way.

Yes, a gentle and sweet story about family and what it can really mean. I hiked along with these characters, and enjoyed the scenery. Cheers!

A great story of love acceptance so much more, I felt like I was there with them. A great read that draws you in.

A beautiful and touching story about how hiking first helped a man connect with his developmentally disabled brother, and then later helped him build an intergenerational relationship with his teenage grandson.  And on top of that, there are fascinating descriptions of the natural world they see on the hikes.  The story is perfect for nature lovers and anyone who enjoys a heartwarming tale.

A fantastic story about love and acceptance. We learn more about our main characters as they hike the trails and marvel at the scenic beauty along the way.
