This trip goes from Cincinnati, Ohio, to the Boston area, then up the New England coast all the way into Canada, then back through the Adirondacks to the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.
Before exploring the state park, which was our reason for coming here, we spent our first day exploring the surrounding area. I am not a NASCAR fan, so I didn’t even know there is a major track here. In fact, while we were here a race took place, in which one of the drivers was killed. I never knew about it until we got back home. We were more interested in seeing other sights.
Such as this marina. They rented all kinds of water craft – motorboats, jet skis, canoes, kayaks, paddle boards – but we didn’t try any of them. They did have a bar and grill with a good band in the evening. We did enjoy that.
We were more interested in the natural attractions. Such as this waterfall.
We walked up to the top.
We drove to another waterfall in the area.
To see another waterfall we had to hike a short trail.
This one actually had people in the water. I felt the water. Too cold for me.
We also wanted to enjoy the lake like others were doing.
So we took a dinner cruise.
The lake is 33-miles long. The cruise took us 11 miles north from the southern tip. The food was okay.
But it was the scenery we were after. Here you can see out boat passing the marina we’d found. We could easily hear their music out on the lake.
Away from Watkins Glen, the scenery improved.
A lot of cabins were situated along the shore.
We saw a nice sunset.
And a nice moonrise.
The next day we devoted to hiking the waterfall trail in Watkins Glen State Park. It was strenuous, but well worth it.
