A Change Of Scenery

As much as I love hiking, I never think to do it when I’m back in Western New York visiting my family. But on this trip I actually had someone to go with, so we decided to search out some nearby places based on my cousin’s recommendations. We ended up at Golden Hill State Park in the little town of Barker, NY (mainly because there’s a lighthouse). We weren’t at all prepared for a big hike, so this was a perfect stroll along Lake Ontario.

As soon as we got out of the car I remembered why I never hiked much growing up there: BUGS! Next time I’ll know to bring some spray as it was pretty relentless. But it was nice to get out and explore an old familiar area, in a new way.
