The Middle Falls of the Genesee River was definitely our favorite of the three major waterfalls on the Genesee River in Letchworth State Park as it is the largest and most spectacular of them all. This all year round photogenic waterway is a complete must-see! 🌊✅
The extensive network of walkways around the falls allowed us to photograph and enjoy it from plenty of different vantage points. Because this falls also had some character to its wide drop, it was the right kind of waterfall to bring a tripod along and try to take those long exposure photographs (like the top one here)! 🎥📷 The falls are lit up at night from May to October though we never stuck around late enough in the day to see this for ourselves.
Letchworth is one of the most notable examples of gorge scenery in the eastern United States! And what better way to see it, than hot air ballooning!! 🎈 We took the ride through, Balloons Over Letchworth which leaves from within the park- very close to middle falls and offers unique and spectacular views of the waterfalls, gorge, and scenery of the “Grand Canyon of the East”. 😀😀😀 #ruchyum #roadtrip #ruchyumtravel #nps100 #nationalparks #travelporn #travelphotography #letchworthstatepark #middlefalls #waterfalls #upstatenewyork #newyork_ig #newyorkers #instagrammers #travelpics #worldcaptures #passionpassport #thetravellerslist #wanderlust #travelblogger #girltraveler
