Boy did we have an unusual experience this afternoon. I was inside when my husband asked me to come outside. There was this terrific sound and I was not sure what he was going to show me. All of sudden out of nowhere across our trees it flew over, you could hear the noise of his engine really really loud. The trees stand next to our driveway. He was flying so low that he looked like he was going down our country road that is in front of our house. . Boy did I want a picture of that. I ran back into the house to get my camera on my phone. But he didn’t come that close again. I could hear the sound of his engine it was almost fearful. He traveled back and forth then going down into the corn crop across the street from where we lived.
Then he started making bigger circles that he went further out and he crossed over our yard out further and then he circle around drop really close to the ground. You see he was spraying the corn with something. It was a one man plane. The plane was painted a bright yellow color so you could not miss it.. So you could see it and hear it very plainly.
It was something else. the big excitement for us for the day. Hope I explained it well enough that you could imagine yourself here today.
12,000 years ago, Watkins Glen State Park was underwater. It is amazing to me that the park was underwater. I just can’t grasp it. It boggles my mind!
Entrance to Watkins Glen State Park
My story behind going to Watkins Glen State Park, is when I was about 13 years old our family had stopped here to visit . My mother is not an outdoors person and my father grew up being outdoors most of his life. His mother always sent him to Camp Poconos,and that is where he learned to love the outdoors. So it was natural for him to want to visit here and show us kids. Well from my recollection it started to drizzle and my mom didn’t want any parts of that, so that was the end well right then I saw this place and told myself I would come back here some day. My dear husband made it possible this year.
Walkway under the falls
My dad told me that him and his mother walked the entire state park
We stopped in the gift shop to get a map, the lady told us that parts of it was under construction. Only about mile was available to walk but she gave us instruction so we could see at least 2 falls. So we headed out …
Many step to climb but it was worth every step of the way!
In the narrows
we got an early start about 8:30 while it as still cool…
