Watkins Glen, NY
Just arrived. Haven’t really had a chance to check out town yet. Eating at Subway. Just finished walking more than 2 miles through the gorge. It is very beautiful and nice and cool.
Following a late lunch at Subway I went across the street to Watkins Glen State Park. The park is really amazing, you walk through a stone tunnel and then her into a gorge that is unbelievable. The sheer cliffs and the waterfalls that flow through the lower level of the gorge are simply beautiful. The walkways, which hug the sides of the gorge, are made out of the rock from the gorge. There are many stairs, as well as several bridges and tunnels to make the walk especially interesting. There’s no shortage of opportunities to capture interesting photographs. Admission to the park was $8 but it also allowed entry to any of the New York state parks for a few days.
