1000 Islands Vacation Day 4: Kring Point State Park

On Day 4 (Wednesday, June 22) of our 1000 Island Vacation we visited four New York State Parks: Keewaydin State Park, Kring Point State Park, Jacques Cartier State Park and Grasse Point State Park.  We also visited the Chippewa Bay area and, later in the evening, downtown Alexandria Bay.  In my first Day 4 blog post I wrote about our Keewaydin State Park visit.  Today’s blog post is about our visit to Kring Point State Park.

The second park that we visited was Kring Point State Park.  We used our Empire Passport for admission to the state park.  Kring Point State Park, which is located approximately 10 miles north of Alexandria Bay, is a narrow peninsula that juts out into the St. Lawrence River.  Its south shore faces Goose Bay and its north shore faces the St Lawrence River.  We spent about an hour at Kring Point State Park, where our main activity was exploring Morgan Island.

Here are three photographs of the Morgan Island footbridge.  The first two photographs were taken from the peninsula, and the third photograph was taken from Morgan Island.

When I took this photograph, I was standing in the area where we parked our car.

We crossed over the footbridge and hiked all over Morgan Island.  There was no need for a trail map.  No one can get lost on this small island!

The crystal clear, aqua blue St. Lawrence River was so beautiful. Please enjoy the photographs that I took, during our hike on Morgan Island, as well as the nature quotations that I applied to each photograph.

“The poetry of the earth is never dead.”
~John Keats

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”
~John Burroughs

“If there is magic on this planet it is contained in water.”
~Loran Eisely

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods…”
~Lord Byron in Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

“Go and walk with Nature; thou wilt find
Full many a gem in her enchanted cup.”
~Issac McLellan, Musings

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”
~Henry David Thoreau

“We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our understandings and our hearts.”
~William Hazlitt

My next 1000 Islands Vacation blog post will provide details and photographs from our visit to Jacques Cartier State Park, what we saw at a scenic overlook near Chippewa Bay and our lunch stop at Schermerhorn Harbor in Hammond, NY.
