The Stair Step Challenge

Sept 18 & 19, 2012
Watkins Glenn State Park
Watkins Glenn, New York

It's a good thing we had time to spend two days here since it rained so hard and so long yesterday, today turned out to be mostly sunny and a beautiful day.  Really needed an extra day or two here as there are several other hikes I would have liked to go on.

Today, after a hearty breakfast of coffee, egg sandwich and V-8 juice I was ready to concur The Gorge, uphill.  I have over 100 pictures, don't worry I'm not going to give you all of them.







Yesterday's picture after a good12 - 18 hour rain.


Today's picture of just about the same spot, just not a close up.

The rest of these pictures are all from today's hike.  Just look at the pounding of that water making this turn.


You can hike up the canyon or down the canyon.  Since Joe doesn't hike he drove to the top to wait for me.


On one of the bridges looking down the gorge.


One of the waterfalls that you can walk behind.



More stairs, getting quite a work out today.



Very little sun gets in here








This has been the most awesome, waterfalls hike I think I have ever been on.  God has given us such beauty in the world, it's up to us to take care of it.

Thanks for stopping by.
