Gorge-ous New York

Magnet #1048 - Watkins Glen State Park

It's funny to have magnets of places in New York State that I haven't been to, but my sister and BIL brought this magnet back for me from upstate. Thanks!

Watkins Glen is one of the most well-known of the state parks in the Finger Lakes region - check out their virtual tour, it does look gorgeous. The park has several miles of trails lined with gorges and waterfalls to hike through. Which, if you think about it, is probably the reason I've never been there - I'm definitely not known for my proclivity toward hiking. (Or camping. Or biking. Or outdoor recreation, in general.)

Although, the other reason we probably skipped the park the last time I was in the Finger Lakes, was because cold enough for people to be ice fishing on Canadarago Lake.

Still pretty cool, though.

Pin It!

Oh, hey, I remember this. Why did we go again?

It was for that whirlwind thousand-mile weekend roadtrip around NYS for the I Heart NY pitch.

That we lost.
