Watkins Glen, New York
The Watkins Glen State Park is the oldest and most renowned state park in the Fingerlakes Region of New York. These photos were taken at the lower end of the gorge, picturing one of 19 waterfalls in the park. The bridge in the photos is Sentry Bridge, a CCC-era bridge that crosses Entrance Cascade. The centerpiece of the park is a 400-foot-deep (120 m) narrow gorge cut through rock by a stream – Glen Creek – that was left hanging when glaciers of the Ice Age deepened the Seneca Valley.
