Letchworth State Park Campout - 8/13-8/17/2008
Amanda & Zeek, Gail & Jeff, and Nancy & Mabel attended this gathering in the west end of New York state. The weather was wonderful and the park, largely developed as a CCC work project throughout the 30s and into the 40s, is fabulous. Highly recommended.

Cool gnarly stump!
Look closely - biggest toad I've ever seen.
Disgusting that folks tossed their garbage off the trail in this beautiful
Thanks Pastor Amanda for hauling it out!

The fourth set of rapids on Wolf Creek
Amanda takes a leap of faith and jumps into the hole at the base of the falls
Amanda slides down the slippery slope into the pool
And so does Nancy
This was almost at the end of the trip and brrrrrr, that water was COLD!
Great fun though, and only $25 per person Monday-Friday.
