No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Today was one day to treasure! My whole family went together to a State park about 2 hours away that we had never gone to before--it is a gorge at the base of one of the Finger Lakes here in Upstate NY...I was so happy we all got to go together! I knew it would be tough walking (and after my shot in my ankle the other day, my husband was worried I wouldn't be able to do it). But I really wanted to as the weather was going to be perfect, and I have learned not to take ONE day for granted with my loved ones...
So this gorge is about 2 miles long--so a 4 mile trek-- and it has these amazing stairs and railings and bridges built back in the 1930's as public works projects. In all there are EIGHT HUNDRED STAIRS in each direction! Yes, I did them ALL! And I was determined NOT to use the railings...Wow...What a workout. I was dripping with sweat. It was pretty busy with it being a holiday weekend, but the time spent with our family was wonderful. And I got a REALLY good workout in the process! (My buns are still burning and my legs still feel like Jello!)
So here are a few pictures
TUNNELS AND STAIRS THROUGH THE ROCK
STAIRS, STAIRS, STAIRS!
AND THE FINAL SET--CALLED JACOB'S LADDER--STRAIGHT UP AND OUT OF THE GORGE!
