Ausable Point Campground, New York

"Ausable Point Campground", New York. Let's talk Beth, if you want to get me up early in the AM, something that will make me jump on up early, early, early ...is a gorgeous sunrise. At this campground was a perfect location to catch one. I am not sure what I love more, a sunset or a sunrise. The 2nd shot was sunset. AMAZING!! The hubby & I will be definitely returning to this campground, a major awesome camping spot. 

Quiet, just amazing hiking & a great place to enjoy your life!!! Please check out the video.. Beth ( :

Ausable Chasm, New York

"Ausable Chasm", New York. I think a lot of people tend to think of New York as only the NEW YORK CITY, but the state has so much to offer. Amazing must see sights. This is one of those sights.

Our visit was on a very calm day. Only a few visitors. Such an amazing hike too. It's video time. I love looking back at our trips. So fun. If you celebrate Thanksgiving hope it is a day full of turkey all those great trimmings. If it's just a normal chilly fall day you enjoy that too.  Beth ( : 

Fillmore Glen State Park, Moravia, New York

"Fillmore Glen State Park", Moravia, New York. Hiking to this waterfall is very close to the campground. If you are not expecting the waterfall you might miss it. The campground has new & very clean restrooms. They have 2 sides to the campground, it was a busy one during the week when we were there.


Check out the video. Beth ( :

Ludlowville Falls, Lansing, New York

"Ludlowville Falls", Lansing, New York. There was no wait to see this waterfall, we were the only ones in sight. a quaint little area. You park, walk through the grass and BAM this waterfall is just there. It is amazing!!! It would be a great spot to take in some views & a bite to eat. Check out the video below. So fun!!! Beth ( :

Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina

Taking off from our regularly scheduled posts to tell you about a recent trip we took to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. (on 11/17 you can read a life update & all about my November "OwlCrate" unboxing on my other blog "Hike2Forty and beyond") The planned: head to Rice, Texas to pick up our "Casita" 17 Independence Deluxe & enjoy the sights going & coming home. (I'll show ya pics of our "Cozy Casa" soon.) Let me say, I know I have said it before & I will probably say it again soon enough... that when we travel we seem to bring rain with us every where we go, so if you are out there & you want rain give me a call asap!! I am open for booking & a small fee needs to be included. thanks. We took rain to Texas & I hope they were happy about it, We were not happy but we made the best of it. Here's the rain schedule, rained every single day (maybe not constantly but pretty darn close.) but the 1/2 day when w…

Buttermilk Falls State Park, New York

"Buttermilk Falls" State Park, Ithaca, New York. Such a gorgeous area. We had our lunch there. What a view. The waterfall is so loud & right within the city. Such a great hiking spot.

Would you please consider watching the video below to see how powerful this waterfall really is ...we got up close & personal while on the hike. Just so you know New York does not do well in calculating the amount of mileage this hike is actually (or what they share on their signage) ...so be prepared to know it is longer than they say kind of hike. We were sweating & totally wishing we had taken water. We know better for next time. Here in Virginia if we say it is 1/2 mile hike, you will darn sure it is a 1/2 mile hike. Maybe they measure different in other state, no clue??! Beth ( :

Taughannock Falls State Park, New York

"Taughannock Falls State Park, Trumansburg, New York. When we visited this waterfall, they were working the scenic parking area & there was an artist setting up his paints to begin is art project. What a view!!! Beth ( :

Robert H. Treman State Park, Ithaca, New York

"Robert H. Treman State Park", Ithaca, New York. Enfield Glen is part of the state park, winding trails follow the gorge, where you have the chance to see 12 waterfalls. If you look at the 1st shot you can see some one in a red shirt ...that is the hiking trail. We ran into rain throughout the whole hike making it very tough not to slip ... those rock trails are not easy to ski on.
"Lucifer Falls", you can see within the 2nd shot, 115 foot tall, was a busy spot, you can see the couple there in the shot, I wanted to get the shot with no one around, but it was sadly not possible. The state park website shows the pool totally full, it is a natural swimming hole. Very cool. We camped at the state park. Please see the video below to get a sense of the powerful waterfalls. Enjoy!!! Beth ( :

hiking at Ricketts Glen State Park, PA

"Ricketts Glen State Park, PA, Natural Area". Lots of waterfalls to be seen on this hike, just a gorgeous hike. If you look at the 1st shot ...those rock steps/stairs at the left of the shot are part of the hike. It is not for the weak. This is a leg/knee workout kind of hike. 
Check out the video from the day just below, there are lots of waterfalls, all sorts of size ...i bet it always is changing depending on the recent rain fall. We loved this hike. Are you a hiker? Beth ( :
