Exploring the Niagara Gorge

{down we go}

It has been a long time {at least it feels that way} since I’ve shared a post. Life and work have been insanely busy the last few weeks and I honestly haven’t had time to really do anything. However these next couple weeks are somewhat manageable so I’ve decided to pack in as much of my summer bucket list and share my experiences with you as I can. Yesterday if you were in WNY you knew it was a GORGEOUS day to be outside, so I decided to finally make a trip to the Niagara Gorge, I have never been and finally made plans with my friend Amanda to check it out.

A short 35 minute drive and we were at the Whirlpool State Park and off we went on the the Devil’s Hole and Whirlpool Rapids trails. Honestly it was so beautiful and peaceful, something I feel like I’ve needed for a while. Check out some of my pics below…

After are hike we decided to grab some food, so Amanda took me to Nick’s Place on Amherst St. in the Black Rock neighborhood {another place I’ve never been before}. It was so good and family owned {which I love even more!}.

Until next time...

Exploring Chestnut Ridge Park

This past Sunday called for a coffee date with a friend who I haven’t seen since the summer. Instead of sitting inside a coffee shop to catch up we grabbed the Cup of Joe to go and hit up Chestnut Ridge Park for a little hiking and exploring adventure. We started off in the main park area by the toboggans and then decided to find the “eternal flame” since neither one of us have seen it before.

We got to the park around 9:30 and were there for about an hour and a half, two hours. Small signs are placed on trees making it easy to follow on the trail and not get lost. Once we started heading back from seeing the flame, groups of people started to make their way through – justifying are decision to hit up the park early.

With this unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having I’ve been trying to take advantage of being outside every chance I can be. If the weather continues to be decent, my next stop is Devil’s Hole in Niagara Falls, NY.
