Great Bend Selfie

Letchworth State Park

I started the summer with a few visits to New York’s state parks. My plan was to explore more as the summer progressed. As you probably can tell from my posts I did not succeed. Labor Day did afford me an opportunity for an adventure and I made the most of it. I left the house before 5am to make the 3 hour trip to Letchworth State Park. There is a reason this park was voted the best in the nation… it is gorgeous!

My first trip a few years ago (see posts here) was fantastic but this time I made sure to get to the park early enough to capture the morning sun. The morning was wonderful but as the sun traveled toward apogee I could feel the warm air rising from the canyon below.  Not to sound a little whiny but I wish I had picked a day that didn’t reach 90 degrees to make this trip. lol

I’ll be posting more images later but I wanted to get this selfie out first. I took the time to enjoy the park and not just run from one photo opportunity to the next. There are an almost unlimited supply of benches scattered throughout the park with amazing views of the canyon. No need to bring a camera. Just pick a bench, sit down and enjoy…
