Hiking in the Finger Lakes Region- New York State
« on: June 06, 2013, 07:49:42 PM »
Thanks to Jane Shifflett who sparked our interest to explore some of the Finger Lakes Region of NY state after reading her article in the March newsletter of the GHTC.

Al and I just spent six days hiking in five state parks- Filmore Glen, Robert Treman, Taughannock Falls, Buttermilk Falls and Letchworth. All the parks were amazing and similar with sparkling lakes, beautiful gorges, breathtaking falls and wooded areas; but unique in their size and variety of cascades. It is hard to believe over thousands of years ago, gigantic glaciers and coursing streams carved this landscape.

We concluded our trip by hiking 15 km on the 500 mi  Finger Lakes Trail. I guess we will have to save the rest for another time.
