Watkin's Glen-gorge trail

We hiked up 800 steps today on Watkin's Glen Gorge trail. Boy, was it worth every step up! There are 19 waterfalls along the trail, 3 that you have to walk behind which is really cool.
The only downfall was no dogs are allowed on the trail. However, I'm not sure Misty could have handled all those stairs.
Here are a few photos. Between our two cameras, we took well over 100. I tried to upload a slide show of all of them, but it would take hours here. Maybe when I get home.
If you are ever in the NY Finger Lakes area, you MUST go to this state park and walk this trail. You can walk the trail in reverse and go down the 800 stairs, but we walked UP hill, 600 feet in elevation, and took the shuttle back to our car. Guess we earned our lunch and ice cream.





All of these photos can be enlarged if you click on them.

These are so beautiful! It looks like a wonderful place to go on vacation. I'm sure the dogs were fine, probably napping in order to play extra hard when you got home!
