Inspiration Point, Letchworth State Park

Letchworth State Park is big! The park is roughly 16 miles long. There are numerous areas to explore. Typically I like to be able to get close to the waterfalls but you can not deny the view from Inspiration Point. It is a spot along the gorge wall where you are looking up the Genesee River at Middle and Upper Falls. It is a beautiful scene. I am usually in the park very early for the morning light but one of these days I will have to capture this area at sunset.

New Bridge

Upper Falls, Letchworth State Park

For today’s post I am back at Letchworth State Park. The bridge over Upper Falls has been replaced and surprisingly, it looks pretty good for a man-made intrusion. You can see the old bridge at this post. With the amount of water in the Genesee river, the mist rising up from the falls created a challenge to keep the front of the lens clear. On the plus side it kept a lot of people from getting too close which gave me plenty of room to setup the tripod… 🙂

Yesterday’s Falls

Chittenango Falls State Park

About half way down the stairs to the bottom of the gorge at Chittenango Falls State Park there is a small observation area where you can view the waterfall. The local greenery has grown up quite a bit over the years but the view is still pretty cool. Other than the walkway bridge at the bottom this is probably the second best location to grab a picture of the cascading water…

Cascadilla Gorge Trail, Ithaca, NY

The first time I visited the Cascadilla Gorge Trail it was in the process of being renovated. This point in the trail was as far as you could hike as the stairs were being rebuilt. I didn’t think much of this location until my trip to Ithaca two weeks ago. I wanted to explore a different area rather than re-walk familiar ground… OK, I didn’t want to hike Robert Treman State Park. That hike always kills me. There I said it, are you happy?
