Not sure how I've never gone on a hike through the Gorge here, since I've been all over western NY & PA... And yet, this was the first time I can remember.
Good timing too, the trails will likely be closed soon for the winter. It was a super cloudy day - but with it being Halloween week, the dark tones and shadows were kinda fun to mosey through and photograph. It's a unique feeling to be surrounded by so much wet stone, sometimes hundreds of feet above and below you - while still being safely on the ground, and open to the sky.
I do love a good Gorge.

One of my favorite spots: bridge, three little drops and a waterfall-in-the-making:
