We received an email from our great friends from Texas, Tom and Carol Sykes that they would be spending a night at an RV park an hour from us. We were so glad to hear that we would have a chance to see them again and of course Mickey couldn't wait to see Uncle Tom and Aunt Carol. We drove to Southwoods RV Park for a cookout and some great conversation. It was nice to hear of their recent travels and their plans for their trip to PEI. We only hope we have an opportunity to meet up with them in Florida.
We also thought we would take Mickey to Naples, NY, a quaint town in the Finger Lakes. I had been wanting to visit Grimes Glen as I had heard so much about it. Apparently it is a popular spot for wedding photos.
Here is Mickey at the start of his hike, but not without stopping for a sniff.
There is a nice picnic area and this bridge is the beginning of the trail. The side of the bridge is painted with fish and and there are small rapids running underneath.
We were told there were high waterfalls about 3/4 of a mile in so decided to take a chance and hike there. As we got further in the trail was quite steep and very narrow along the falls as well as slippery. Several people were taking the low road which involved removing your shoes and walking across the water. We figured neither way would work for Mickey as he would get too tired on his own and if I carried him I was afraid of falling with him. There were also several dogs on the trail that were not leashed so we decided to turn back before reaching the high falls. It was still a nice day and I would like to return when we can hike the whole way.
