Hiking at the Gorge
Rain threatened early in the day, but it turned out to be beautiful weather for a walk through Chautauqua Gorge. Hubby and I went with our son, his fiance, and another couple, our good friends who have hiked around the gorge before.


My son and his girlfriend were looking for places that would be good photo ops for their engagement photos. The steep, narrow trails down to the water were a little tricky, but a walking stick helped a lot.


You need to wear shoes or sandals that are sturdy and you don't mind getting wet. You often have to walk through the creek. We haven't had a lot of rain this summer so the water levels were down quite a bit.


Since the water levels are down, some of the waterfalls have barely a trickle. But we did find a few to enjoy.




Hubby rested his feet for a few minutes and I used the time to get a picture.


And here is one photo op of the kids.


We had a great time getting some fresh air, sunshine, laughter and more than a little wet. Yeah, so it goes without saying that some of these rocks are slippery, right? Even with the walking stick I managed to slide into the water at one point. No, I don't have a picture of that - thank goodness. Next time I'll be sure to wear some lightweight shorts instead of heavy denim, so they'll dry out faster.

Summer is rapidly drawing to an end and we've been trying to hold on tight with both hands, enjoying the good weather for as long as we can. What did you do this weekend?
