Watkins Glen State Park ADVENTURE

Peg, David and I left Middleport at 9:45 this morning to drive to Willard, New York to tour the inactive Psychiatric Hospital.  We arrived in plenty of time but were not allowed to drive onto the property.  First we were told there was a fire, but the second fellow did not give us a reason.

We found a place to have ice cream and discussed our options.  We decided to continue heading south and go to Watkins Glen State Park.  Peggy and I had been there a really long time ago, probably in the early l980s.

The hike through the gorge was really nice......there are nineteen waterfalls in this century and a half old park.

I think we walked about half way and then turned back and took a somewhat different route back to the Main Entrance.  Later on in the season, there is a shuttle bus at the opposite end  that will take you back to the Main Entance, but unfortunately it was not running today.  

We drove up along the west side of Seneca Lake on our way back towards Niagara County.  We stopped briefly to drive through Freedom Village, a Christian home for troubled teens.
