Drawing at Watkins Glen

I recently had a chance to go hiking through Watkins Glen State Park on a couple of different weekends.  The first time there, I was struck by how beautiful the park is.  Everything was so green, and all of the stone paths, stairways, and bridges were so lovely to look at.  Some of the bridges even made me think of some of the scenes of Rivendell in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, like in the photo below.  

I also learned that rain boots would make be a much better shoe decision because of all of the water on the paths from the multiple waterfalls.  The second time I went there, I wore my rain boots and brought my sketchbook to do some drawing.  

Below you can see  two pages from my sketchbook.  If you've never been to the park, I highly recommend checking it out if you're in the area.
