We have lived in the Bristolwood for nearly 16 years and we have frequently been to Naples. I was always curious about a little sign along Main Street indicating “Grimes Glen” was to the right….
Carly has a book full of hiking trails throughout New York and Grimes Glen is amongst them. She and her kids explored this little gem last year, so after our first adventure, the kids were agreeable to hike this gorge!
This sign greets wayfarers entering the head of the Grimes Glen trail. I am unsure what, exactly, it means…but, there you have it!
Anyone with an eye for flora would find this area a delight! Of course, how could I pass up a cluster of *blue* Forget-Me-Nots?
Within just a few yards of the entrance (across a bridge in need of a bit of repair) we came upon the most magnificent Trilliums! I have seen these in different colors and I have seen white flowers with red streaks, but this burgundy-colored flower was gorgeous. AND, there were many of them!
There were so many “Kodak moments” along this pathway! Just look at this stream flowing so beautifully!
And since we are looking, take a gander at this nosegay of Wood Violets! Are they not wonderful?
So, enough of the flowers…How about another waterfall
We wandered a little farther, taking in sights and just enjoying this experience so immensely! One of the boys had to be home to babysit his sisters, so we turned around and headed back….
But as I turned back to drink in the beauty, I whispered, “Oh, I shall be back here again…..trust me!”
