ABC Friday- Letter G

G is for gorges, glens, and gullies. (Am I allowed to do this twice in one week? I just couldn't wait for Round 8.)
Earlier in the week Rachel called to ask if we wanted to hike Grime's Glen in Naples, NY with her today. It sounded like fun so I said yes. (First I went to the chiropractor because I have been hurting for several weeks now. I know I should not try to feed a baby and talk on the phone simultaneously, but that is what I did and I paid the price. Hopefully I am on the mend. I will see Dr. Matt again next week so he can twist my head around some more. In the meantime I can lift my arms without sharp pains in my shoulders.)

Anyway, the glen was gorgeous. Rachel and I were there two years ago, in the fall, on a sisters day, but it was a colder day and we didn't walk very far. Today we walked right up the creek and saw both waterfalls. The water was cold but not painfully so. It actually felt good.

We hiked to both waterfalls and I found myself wishing I had worn shorts or a bathing suit so I could swim in the pool beneath the second falls. I doubt I will make it back again before the water is too cold too swim in. I would however, like to take a hike through some of the other gorges, glens, and gullies in the Finger Lakes area before winter sets in.

  1. With pictures and stories like this, I think you can have a ABC Monday -Friday, maybe Sat. and Sun. too.

    Love the picture of the boys in the falls....looks so cold.

  2. We would love to hike some of the other gorges with you! I'm sure Priscilla would too.

  3. I am just so jealous that I couldn't go today and I am still sad that I didn't get pics of Alicia and Elise there. They had a wonderful time!

  4. wonderful memories, and more to come. Do you ever wonder how many memories your brain can hold? humm...that must be the hour talking.

  5. As an upstate guy, I love the Finger Lakes. and such enthusiasm for ABC Wednesday. Try not to do 2 Qs in one week, or you'll have nothing for next round.

  6. Okay, Roger, thanks for the tip. :)

    Judi, I have wondered those kinds of things. Maybe that is why my memory is getting shorter.

    Priscilla and Rachel, we still have time to do something. At least I hope so.

    Wanda, come along and play with us!
