A friend of DH’s recently asked him on Facebook how we find all the cool places we visit. Most of our plans start with a simple idea, and then evolve into something else. Letchworth State Park in western New York is a good example. Eleven years ago, when we were newly engaged, we took a trip to Niagara Falls, And thought we might make it to Letchworth on the same trip. We had heard of it from members of our photography club, and had seen some beautiful pictures. We ran out of time that weekend, and have thought of it a time or two since, but never made the trip. Driving home from Cleveland last month, we were reminiscing about our trip to Niagara and Erie, and remembered Letchworth. Letchworth = western New York = Finger Lakes = Summer vacation 2013!
Some of our first views did not overwhelm us, but they just got better and better. Do you like their picnic tables?
I have about a hundred pictures of waterfalls, but because I’m so exhausted, I’ll only download a few. We stopped at every overlook, took a couple of short hikes, had a nice picnic lunch, saw deer, squirrels, and chipmunks. Oh, and I bought a book. Big surprise, huh?
And no, I’m not being paid by the New York Department of Tourism. It’s just a beautiful state!
Be kind to yourself!! Sunny
