camping in NY state

For the Victoria Day long weekend (May 19-21 2007), I went with my family on a camping/RV trip to Letchworth State Park. Yes, this was more than a week ago. And yes, I've only just now downloaded my digital photographs.

Letchworth simply blew us away. The gorge cut by the Genesee River is, in places, 600 feet deep. The river makes three amazing sets of waterfalls.


UPPER FALLS




LOWER FALLS




My pictures of the middle falls are on 35mm... still undeveloped. I hiked all the way up to the top of the canyon, right underneath the railway bridge (right side) in the first picture.

It was a good weekend. The weather wasn't too bad, and I got to try some delicious wine from the nearby Finger Lakes: Salmon Run Petit Noir and Coho Red.

I love clamping. This must be close to us, but where?

RV? Relatives? Are you off your meds?

Torn: it's much handier to Toronto than Montreal, I'm afraid. Not that a 6h drive is handy. It's directly south of Rochester, and west of the Finger Lakes.

Western North Carolina has a lot of stuff like that everywhere. Did you put out you camp fire and pick up your litter? Don't make Indians cry.

I saw the pics that your sister-in-law took. Also very nice.

I was just at home while you were there.
