Watery Wednesday # 107: Letchworth State Park

Middle Falls, Letchworth State Park, New York. August 31, 2002.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

Letchworth State Park in New York is sometimes referred to as the “Grand Canyon of the East”  The Genesee River flows through a gorge and over three waterfalls between cliffs as high as 600 feet in some places.

The waterfall pictured above is Middle Falls.  It is in the middle both in terms of height and in terms of distance down the river.
