1 Letchworth State Park is known as the "Grand Canyon of the East" - it is the largest canyon east of the Mississippi. This is was our first trip to Letchworth, a spot that we've been hearing about for years. It's only a couple hours drive for us and proved well worth the visit. A panorama of the Big Bend hilights the kind of views that we were treated to during our two day visit.

8 After our first climb above the Upper Falls, Wendy was dying for a nap, and took advantage of one of the many stone picnic tables scattered around the park.

10 Not quite Niagara Falls, but more intimate and just as enjoyable.
