Saratoga Spa State Park
Headed up to Saratoga Spa State Park with Kalli on a mild but mostly cloudy, grey December day. We parked at the southern picnic area along Geyser Loop Road and began our walk along beautiful Geyser Creek.
There are a seemingly endless amount of trails throughout the park, some marked some not. Here is view along the Geyser Trail.
Walking along Geyser Creek on a wide, open path.
There are several foot bridges over the creek to allow access to either side.
Headed towards the springs.
Island Spouter with informational board.
Just upstream from Island Spouter is this small dam along Geyser Creek.
Leaves stuck in the tufa.
Calcium Carbonate or Tufa colored orange from iron.
Looking down the gorge from the SPAC entrance foot bridge high above.
Enjoyed a very leisurely stroll on another mild day. Walked a little under 2 miles total on the Geyser Trail and various park roads.
