Whew! SO much fun that we are getting SO far behind on posting.
These are pics from our Tuesday in Watkins Glen, NY! This small village of just over 2,000 is known for its contributions to auto racing. Watkins Glen is where US road racing got its start! Today, Watkins Glen International Raceway hosts several races throughout the year, including a NASCAR Cup
Series event in August and the Vintage Grand Prix event every September!
Watkins Glen is at the southern tip of Seneca Lake, the largest of the eleven Finger Lakes in mid-state NY. The weather was perfect on our Tuesday and we spent the morning hiking in Watkins Glen State Park. The ”gorge trail” is amazing! it’s only a mile long, but it is all uphill, which makes the mile coming back a breeze! 😁 There are 19 waterfalls on this trail! NINETEEN! It’s almost like traveling thru a fairy land. I would love to do a mermaid photo shoot here. ❤️
It really warmed up in the afternoon and we decided to cool off in Seneca Lake, which was right across from our campground. Later in the evening we walked from our campsite at Clute Park up to Lafayette Park for a picnic and great little concert by a local husband & wife jazz duo.
