On Saturday Greg and I went to Letchworth State Park for a beautiful but chilly walk around their 3 main waterfalls and many smaller waterfalls. The leaves are just starting to change colors and in a week or two they should be at their peak. It was a cold day at 54°F that felt like 48°F. (That would be 8.8 °C!) It was warmer at our house since we had a bright sun that was hot. But once we got to our destination, we found that the sun was gone and there was a slight breeze. Greg dressed in his short pants and I thought he was crazy but he thought it was going to warm up. But it was colder there; though there were a few hardy souls in short pants. We stopped for lunch on our way there, which was difficult since there are very few places to eat. We both had hot tea, hot roast beef sandwiches and mashed potatoes. I am fairly particular about roast beef and the waitress said they were known for their beef. And since it was so cold we needed to start our adventure with some comfort food! The cover picture is a view of the Lower Falls and I will be sharing more pictures of that area in my next posting. The beauty of this area is a bit overwhelming because in a short distance there is so much to see! Below are the pictures I took when we first got to the park.
Below are a few pictures on our way to the Lower Falls! The one picture you can see the tree that is almost falling off the edge – we notice from the erosion a lot of trees were close to falling into the water!
