This past weekend I spent some much needed time in the woods, well more like a gorge. I traveled to Watkin Glenns, NY to see what all the fuss was all about. It was fussable for sure, I loved this place instantly. I am so glad I went early in the morning because by the time I had finished the 3 mile run trip through the gorge I was making friends and seeing tons of repeater hikers in my view. I did however miss my cat terribly, he did not go hiking although I am very open to taking him hiking in one of those space cowboy contraptions.
Would I go back, hell yes! ! It was one of the best times in New York ( my home state) in a long ass time. I am so happy I got to get out in nature and combine some much needed water time. In my element literally water always makes me feel like I can be my most authentic self. It offers this clean, cool, cleansing, natural substance that really sets me back to baseline. After all I am mostly water, so that makes a little sense right? I really wanted to swim in these little tide pools I kept seeing, but jeez was it crowded! I went on a Friday too, you would think it was a holiday weekend. I did find my usual couple from Philly in NY which I always love finding! I always get a kick when I find out someone from my neck of the woods winds up in my current city. We are after all apparently the 6th borough.
I really have this odd thing for water falls. Like I just don't love them, I am really drawn to them. I crave adventure and water, i want to see so much of the world, well atleast the US. There are so many more places I have on my list. I am so happy I got to knock some off my bucket list this past weekend! i'll see you next week!
