Fillmore Glen

In upstate N.Y. in the small town of Summerhill is Fillmore Glen.  This is one of my favorite glens for hiking and doing some photography.  It only has five waterfalls but the trail along the stream in the deep woods makes it special.  I enjoyed my visits to this glen because I rarely came across other visitors in my hikes.  I am sure at certain times of the year is can be busy, but I always found it empty of people on my visits.  The challenge with doing photography in these glens can be the low light that requires a long exposure and the a risk of a breeze blurring the vegitation along the steam. The glen is named after President Fillmore who grew up near this location.
