If you ever have the opportunity to visit Letchworth State Park in New York, jump at the chance! And while you are there, take the additional time to wander over to Watkins Glen. Letchworth State Park is only 4 hours driving distance away (close to the Finger Lakes) and has been dubbed the “Grand Canyon of the East.” The scenery is spectacular, the hiking trails are incredible and the views…….well – see for yourself.
In total, the park has over 88 waterfalls, many of them unnamed. However, the truly magnificent ones are called the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls – not very imaginative perhaps, but who needs a glamorous title when you look like this?
And those pictures are just the Upper Falls! Next post…the Middle Falls, where William P. Letchworth built his mansion so he would always have a view of the Gennessee River thundering through the gorge.
