Photo of the Day: The Middle Falls in Letchworth

We visited Letchworth State Park in Upstate New York earlier this month, often referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the East” because of the massive gorge that runs through the park. I highly recommend a visit; it’s easy to see why it was voted the #1 State Park in the country. It’s full of scenic beauty and not as touristy as some other parks. And if you go off season as we did, you practically have the park to yourself. We only stayed for two days but you could easily spend a week there hiking its 66 miles of trails.

This is a side view of the Middle Falls, one of the park’s main attractions.

Fundy National Park, Canada - August, 2016 This photo is from an early evening hike in Fundy National Park along a small waterfall trail. It was beautiful, like a stroll through Middle Earth, and peaceful—we had the entire trail to ourselves. Our schedule didn't allow us time to see much of the park, but it's clearly worth at least a full-day's visit. #bayoffundy #Canada #fundynationalpark #hiking #landscapes #maritimeprovinces #maritimes #newbrunswick #Photography #roadtrips #streams #waterfalls

17-Mile Drive, California - October, 2014 A few years ago I went on a business trip to San Francisco, where I decided to take a few extra days to myself to do some exploring. On my first day in San Francisco I met up with my cousin who lives nearby. He took me on a driving tour of the Pacific coast. This photo is from 17-Mile Drive, a scenic route along the Monterey peninsula, featuring rocky coastlines, large crashing waves; and islands of sea lions and birds. #17MileDrive #beaches #California #coastline #landscapes #NorthAmerica #ocean #pacificcoast #Photography #shore #Travel #UnitedStates
