Twelve Months Hiking Project: Letchworth State Park (October 2015)

image

Twelve months of hiking continues!  I’m way behind on recaps – but not to worry, I did the hike in October; it’s just that I’m not writing it up until now.  I saved Letchworth for October because I expected the foliage would be spectacular.  And while we missed peak, it was still pretty fabulous.

Anyway, let’s look at pretty pictures of waterfalls.

When we visited Letchworth with our friends Zan and Paul, back in August of 2014, we walked up the gorge and checked out one waterfall.  I wanted to see a different part of the park this time, so we targeted the other two major waterfalls.

It was a bit dreary and chilly out, but no matter – we bundled up and started our hike with the central waterfall.

(Note Nugget’s pretty purple jacket.  I had actually forgotten his little sweatshirt that he was going to wear, but Peanut had an extra fleece, so he’s wearing that.  It fit disturbingly well considering she is three years old and he was seven months at the time.)

We headed up a pretty path strewn with leaves, admiring the colors that still remained on the trees…

And up to one of the more breathtaking sights in Western New York.

I love waterfalls.

Back along the gorge, checking out more scenery and pretty fall colors.

We had such a nice (albeit a bit chilly) walk in Letchworth.  I wish we hadn’t missed the peak leaf season – but even so, it was lovely.

(Oh, yeah – Letchworth was recently voted America’s favorite state park!  I’m still partial to the Adirondack Park, myself, but Letchworth is pretty great.  Congrats to them!)

Anyone else get any good leaf peeping in before the season ended?
