Gorge Trail, Watkins Glen, NY

Sitting on the tip of Seneca Lake, the largest one in all glacial Finger Lakes, Watkins Glen State Park is most famous for its 19 waterfalls along the gorge. Walking along the trail reminds me of quite some similar scenery in China, such as the Golden Whip Brook (金鞭溪) in Zhangjiajie(張家界), Hunan. But the most impressive  part of hiking on the Gorge Trail is to see the shape of rock along the way. While being cut through by the creek, the canyon wall just seems to be an accumulation of multiple sheets of rocks: It shows us the trace of time, quietly.
