Photo Contest: Submit Your Photos of New York State Parks
One of the best parts of vacationing is taking pictures of wonderful moments with friends and family. I also enjoy grabbing those great nature pictures. I remember traveling to the Grand Canyon and taking pictures with my phone all along the way. It was so breathe taking I just knew there was no way my memory would do it justice.
New York State also has so many beautiful spots, we are lucky in the Hudson Valley to be surrounded by parks and mesmerizing outdoor experiences. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) along with New York State is hoping that while you are out and about this summer your will share your memories of hiking, camping, and more with them.
