Star Trek Tour

This awesome Star Trek Original Series replica set is located in the little town of Ticonderoga, New York.

Watkins Glen State Park

Located at the southern end of the Finger Lakes area in New York is Watkins Glen State Park. This long and narrow state park runs along the course of Glen Creek.

We opted for the former although by the time we hit Jacob’s Ladder at the end of the trail, we could have sworn we had climbed all the way to the heavens.
