Letchworth Hike :)

2 Posts in one day? We've been pretty busy!


The quote on the rock reads:
"God wrought for us this scene beyond compare, but one man's loving hand protected it and gave it to his fellow men to share."
~ Sarah Evans Letchworth

We had a glorious afternoon! The weather was absolutely perfect and we couldn't bear to waste the day inside or just putzing around the house. We traveled about an hour out to Castile, NY to go on a hike at Letchworth State Park. We hiked the Gorge Trail which is about a 7 mile hike...we did about 3 miles down to the lower falls, had lunch, then turned around and hiked 3 miles back to the car. The kids did great, and loved collecting rocks and pine cones along the way. Josh had enough in his pockets to literally weigh him down and he just didn't quite understand why he was having so much trouble towards the end. LOL

Here are some of the pics...pretty, eh?

The Upper Falls.

I think I can, I think I can...

Here you can see the Upper Falls, and Middle Falls...and a glimpse of why they call this the "Grand Canyon of the East"...surely it's a bit more magnificent when everything is green :)

The kids in front of a frozen fountain that sits in front of the Glen Iris Inn at Letchworth. The fountain never turns off, so in the winter it totally freezes, eh?
