Watkins Glen, New York

14 Nov

The amazing and always beautiful Watkins Glen situated in upstate New York right off of picturesque Seneca Lake, was one of the places I really wanted to visit again while visiting my relatives in New York. I have gone on this hike several times in my life but up until now all of them had been as a youth.

My Grandparents graciously took me to Watkins Glen but decided they only wanted to hike to the first set of long steep stairs. I made it all the way to the top of the last set of very long steep stairs and spent much of the hike alternating between jogging the trail and stopping to take photos.

If you ever have the chance to be in the area I highly recommend this hike, it is adorned with waterfalls that twist and turn in the path of the narrow steep cliffs of slate.

Now that I have photographed Watkins Glen once,  I would really like to go back and do it again at another time of day, and with a tripod. 🙂

    Beautiful. Looks like you did a great job without a tripod. Excellent photos.

      Thanks! There were a few that I didn’t share that would have had lots of potential with a tripod. Plus it is so beautiful I would love to return anyway. 🙂

        The waterfalls are incredible! I honestly thought you had used a tripod.

      Thank you. The cliffs are amazing in that area. I visited a restaurant that is built into the side of a cliff so you can see out in the restaurant. Water trickles through the rocks. It is really neat.
