For many of us who have ties to upstate New York Watkins Glen State Park, Letchworth State Park, and Stony Brook State Park are places with special meaning. From family reunions, to church picnics, to spending time there with someone special, when it comes to autumn we naturally think of these places.
I first came to the Finger Lakes region when I was fourteen or so. I had lived in Pennsylvania and Vermont before coming to the Northern Finger Lakes, and while I’ve lived all over the country since then there is something about these parks in the fall that is hard to find anywhere else. Perhaps it’s the colors and the fact that it is one of the clearest times of the year around here. Perhaps it’s the way that leaves look when in the gorges. Whatever it is, it makes this area worth visiting during the autumn.
