Gorge-ous

Chittenango Falls State Park

I decided a wider view to include more of the gorge was called for to highlight the changing colors of the leaves. My typical focus only on the waterfall would have left a lot of the color out of the picture. I also like that this view makes the 167′ waterfall feel small in comparison to the the walls of the gorge.

Glen of Pools

Watkins Glen State Park

After crossing the bridge over the Central Cascade you enter the Glen of Pools in Watkins Glen. I’ve photographed this area many times and depending of the level of water in the creek it takes on different appearances. Typically I would like more water but there is a subtle clarity with the lower level bringing out the individual pools in this section of the gorge.

Out of the Dark

Watkins Glen State Park

Above the iconic Rainbow Falls, heading toward Mile Point Bridge is the Spiral Gorge section of the trail. It is a dark and narrow passage with dripping springs, sculptured pools, and thin Pluto Falls. This is the view of the gorge looking back toward Rainbow Falls from the vantage point of Pluto Falls. You can barely see three fellow hikers entering this section of the trail in the top, left third of the image.
