I < 3 NY - Part Four - Taughannock Falls in Ithaca

Megan and I at Taughannock Falls State Park.  

More hiking and more gorges! 

Taughannock Creek 

An old railroad bridge that we'll be crossing that's way the hell up above the gorge. 

Another waterfall

Taughannock Falls 

 The 215 foot drop is 33 feet higher than Niagara Falls

Unfortunately, it started to rain and Megan hurt her knee.  Scout was pretty tired.  So, we cut out most of the hiking we planned to do.  But, as I said about Lucifer Falls, it's a good excuse to come back. 

Waves of rain crashing against the woods.  Cayuga Lake in the distance.





INDIAN VILLAGES
Occupied by Taughannocks situated north and south of stream burial ground on bluff west of John Jones home site Indians named Lake-Guenguch

That's it for this trip.  All you really need to know though is:
