Glimmerglass State Park-Cooperstown, NY Sep 6-9, 2016


After spending our Summer in Maine, it's time to head west...our first stop was at Glimmerglass Lake State Park in Cooperstown, NY.  Cooperstown is the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Glimmerglass Lake

This is one of the reasons we love to stay at state parks.
Most State Parks have views that just don't quit.

Now that's a lot of grass to mow.. 



Hyde Hall Bridge
This is a covered bridge in the park.  Built in 1825, it's one of the oldest covered bridges in the United States



It was originally built to access Hyde Hall, a country mansion.  It was built using a 53 foot span consisting of a Burr Truss Arch.  At nearly 200 years old, it shows the skills of master carpenters.


Linda spotted this beaver near the covered bridge.




Our campsite was tucked in the trees.




Site #36 is the best site in the park.  It has a long driveway with plenty of privacy.



Downtown Cooperstown is all about baseball...



The town is surrounded by trees on all sides.  It seems so nice now, but I'll bet the winters get pretty cold.
