Fillmore Glen

Sam and I took an early morning walk and hike through Fillmore Glen, which is South of Moravia.  It is one of the many beautiful gorges of the Fingerlakes region and is the most rustic of the local parks.  It has dense woods crowded in to a long, narrow gorge.  We did not walk far enough to see all of the falls because of a time constraint. It is definitely a site I would like to return to.

Named after the 13th President of the United States, Millard Fillmore (who was born nearby) the glen now bears his namesake. It was also the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp in 1934-38, which did the construction during the Great Depression of the masonry found in the park.

Here are some photos I took this morning during the walk.
