Hi everyone. Hope your day is good so far. It is chilly here in New Hampshire this morning. I guess it is a taste of back to school weather. (One more week and I go back. Lots of mixed feelings about that.:) )
So today I have a journal page for Art Journal Journey. Thanks Jo for the great theme of Poetry in Motion. Today's page is made on a piece of cardboard with lots of layered tissue and book pages. I used some of the inner layer of napkin tissue this time. Some of the bright leaves on the top layer leaked through onto the inner layer while printing. I like the delicate and just visible splash of color.
Then I added lots of ephemera elements to finish off my page.
So today I also have some more photos from my 4 day journey to New York's Finger Lakes. I'll be back tomorrow with some more glass, but today I have some photos from our hike in Watkins Glen State Park.
A very popular trail there is this Gorge Trail. It is a historic trail that goes down along a river in the gorge the river has carved out.
The trail is on the left side of the photo and it is covered with slate or cement and there are stairs up and down on the slopes. One set of stairs said it was built in 1908. This is not the rough hiking on dirt that we've done many other places.
To get in and out of the gorge there are stairs-over 800 of them.
The round trip trail itself is about 2.5 miles (4 km).
Its my kind of hike beacuse the views are spectacular.
We had the perfect morning to do this hike, not too hot, and I am really glad we did. It had a lot of wow factor for sure!
And who knows. Maybe the couple in my art today once hiked this trail too.
If you're interested you can find out more information at Watkins Glen State Park.
Thanks for stopping by.
