789 Steps

Watkin's Glen State Park was an amazing part of our trip.  We are pretty close to New York when we visit the camp, but this was still quite a drive.  I thought that maybe it wouldn't be worth it, but I was very wrong!  I did not expect to see 19 stunning waterfalls with deep pools and amazing views.  The hike included walking through caverns and over stone bridges.  Not to mention I walked under/through several waterfalls which is pretty amazing especially on a hot August day.  Enjoy my favorite photos.

The rocks take on such amaing shapes.

Many wildflowers were in bloom that day.
