Allegany State Park – Stone Tower

Bob and I visited Allegany State Park near Salamanca, New York, this past Sunday. We visit the park frequently, as it is within an hour’s drive from our house. My blog posts this week will showcase photographs from all of our visits to Allegany State Park. The subject of today’s blog post is the Stone Tower.

Stone Tower is located the Red House area. The lure of Stone Tower is the panoramic view afforded from its vantage point.

In October 2008 we encountered a dog at Stone Tower. There was no owner in sight.

Bob checked the dog’s tags and found that he lived near Stone Tower.

The dog’s bandanna read “Bad Dog”. The dog wasn’t bad, though; he was a good dog. When we left Stone Tower, the dog accompanied us. He ran in front of our car until he reached a cabin at the end of the road. The dog stopped there (his home?), while we continued on our way.

The panoramic view from Stone Tower is lovely regardless the time of year.

The road to Stone Tower is closed during the Winter months.  I would love to take in the view from Stone Tower in the Winter.  Perhaps one day I can hitch a ride on a snowmobile 🙂
