Letchworth State Park, Perry, NY

Lower Falls, Letchworth State Park, NY
Thursday, August 7, 2014, Letchworth State Park, Perry, NY - 97.8 miles, 15,798.7 For the Trip

While I could have made it a long day and driven home to Oswego, I decided to take a couple of days getting back. I stopped at Letchworth State Park for the day & am in site 328, a 30 amp electric only site for $23.75. It looks like it rained recently; lots of puddles around the campsites, with standing water in some of them. At Letchworth, when you check in they give you a list of available sites, then have you pick one out, then drive back to the check in to register, so I didn't end up in an underwater site!

After setting up the trailer I drove to the waterfalls. They are not as photographic as some of my past visits (I've been visiting the park since my daughter attended SUNY Geneseo in the early 90's). After a heavy rain the water is too high and too muddy for good pictures. Still, you work with what you get! I also took a couple of photographs of the CCC stature, as well as the Mary Jemison statue (she was the "White Woman of the Genesee.")

There was a crew taking down a large maple tree at the head of the Middle Falls, so I took a couple of photos of it going down.

More photos at today's LakeshoreImages page.

Dinner will be my last Amy's frozen dinner, my favorite, Cheese Enchiladas.

Until tomorrow.

  1. It seems like you have done some serious driving from Pacific coast to NY! I love waterfalls, big or small, tremendous or not.
