...Taughannock Falls State Park, that is.
My husband and I began our recent anniversary celebration
with an afternoon walk through this favorite park,
just north of Ithaca.
Spoiler alert: this is the grand finale of the walk.
Grand in their own right, these falls greet all who
enter the trail.
On this particular hot day we saw young and old
wading, sliding and just cooling off
in Mother Nature's swimming pool.
While admiring the falls at the end of the trail I noticed these
rock formations. Having studied Pre-Columbian art
in college, and having climbed Mayan ruins,
of course I saw Mayan hieroglyphs....
but then again, I'm always looking for shapes in the clouds!
We had a great anniversary,
and didn't have to travel far for it!
What's your favorite local spot?
