Watkins Glen & Buttermilk Falls

So has it been over a week since I last posted? Wow. Well, I finished grading all those exams and thought I'd pop on here before I begin the next batch of grading. *sigh* Rather than yakking non-stop I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. It's more peaceful that way and you can maybe enjoy the Glen like we did, in the early morning, a cool mist as the rains ended and the sounds of rushing water and birds all around. Here's a live web cam link set up on Lake Seneca Harbor near the Glen. Live Web Cam Here's the Wiki about Watkins Glen, NY Oh, and click on the photos to make them larger. They look so much better than these little shots can show.


































This last picture was taken at Buttermilk Falls, about 25 minutes from Watkins Glen. It's a State Park and we rented a cabin there. Very nice, very cheap, very deserted. We were there the last week of the season. It got down to 41 the second night we were there. That might explain the absence of tourists. Buttermilk Falls State Park

Beautiful. Just beautiful.. I love the colors. I love the trails also. We would love to rent a cabin sometime. I hate fishing though.. I would love to rent a cabin jusst to get a way for a week or so even a weekend.

Hi Tweets, yeah, it was gorgeous, no pun intended. That's basically what we did, btw, rented a cabin just for the weekend, good sized one with 4 cots for $50/night. Off-season or late in the season the prices are likely best.

What a BEAUTIFUL Area.....And the leaves....Just Gorgeous! It sounds like it was a rather ideal time even though the weather got cold.
BEAUTIFUL Pictures, my dear!

OL, it was absolutely spectacular! We also had a good sleeping bag so we were warm in the cabin.

Went ti the light show in the summer up on the glen walls, a little interesting to be walking there in the night! Love the pics ... did you get to stop at a few wineries too!!

We only stopped at the American Winery near Cayuga Lake and that was to pick up some items for a friend. We made the important stops though, Lupo's Spiedies in Endwell and the Cider Mill in Endicott. :-)

Cool!
