Letchworth State Park

This post is coming to you very very late. Back in March my mom and I took a drive to Letchworth State Park. We had seen signs for it on our previous drive to Buffalo and just couldn't resist going back. Not to mention tons of thrifting and antiquing along the way.

Letchworth is home to Mt. Morris dam on the Genesee River.  The pictures really don't do it justice, in real life it is so tall and huge that it almost makes you dizzy to look at. It was built to protect the surrounding towns from getting flooded. Its a dry dam so there isn't much water  most of the time but I'm sure at flood times its really scary.

The dam is a major attraction however the plant life is extremely beautiful. There are also cabins you can stay in during the summer and we are hoping to rent one soon. I can't wait to take my summer vacation!
And of course my beautiful Hunnels was waiting for me when I got home.

mini road trip

On Sunday my mom and I drove to Buffalo for my best friend's baby shower. Since its a three hour drive we decided to see Niagara falls while we were in the area. (Its only 15mins from my friend's house) I had been there with my dad when I was a kid, but this time was a lot more fun. It was really nice and quiet because its the off season and we were there in the afternoon. I'm used to seeing waterfalls all the time since here in Ithaca we have so many but, Niagara is just a lot bigger. I was surprised by it and it was actually incredibly cool to see.

As we were leaving we spotted this little guy. No one else noticed him and it felt really special to me. He was all puffed up and looked so cute.

Then on Monday we went for a little walk. So many spring flowers are out. We're starting to get some warm days and I just cant get enough of being outside again.

On our walk we went to my favorite cemetery in town, and went to some parts of it I hadn't been to before (its really quite large). The face of the statue below has such realistic eyes, she looks like she can see right into you.
