New York Trip Reports

New York Photos

Many years ago, a business trip gave me the opportunity to do my first (and so far, only) real hike in New York. I chose a nice hike to Slide Mountain in the Catskills. Highlights of the hike included some nice views and my first ever Porcupine sighting. Unfortunately, that trip was years before I started doing trip reports and taking photos. Since then, I've visited New York City twice. In April, 2005 a one-day work trip left me with a couple of hours to walk around Manhattan. In April of 2009, Christy made her first visit to Manhattan.

In October, 2017 Christy, the dogs and I took a trip to Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Upstate New York. After starting in Ohio, we drove to Buffalo and visited Niagara Falls.    (Photos) . The next day we hiked to waterfalls and views in Letchworth State Park.    (Photos) . We camped at Buttermilk Falls State Park near Ithaca that night. The next morning we did the spectacular hike through the gorge at Watkins Glen State Park.    (Photos) .
