Story Behind the Photo: Genesee River

Genesee River, Letchworth State Park, Castile, NY

The Genesee River flows through Letchworth State Park located about 35 miles southwest of Rochester, NY. Carving a gorge through the park, the rock walls climb up to 550 feet in some locations, hence the nickname the “Grand Canyon of the East”. There are three large waterfalls in the park, named only for their locations: Upper, Middle and Lower Falls. All o f the falls are located in the southern section of the park, known as Portage Canyon. This photo is of the Middle Falls, located in the most narrow section of the gorge where only 400 feet separates the two rock walls.Click here to buy a print and view the entire collection
