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.

Mabel, headed to Letchworth!

Cool gnarly stump!

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

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.
