3 waterfalls in 3 hours....

You hear that Ithaca has 150 waterfalls.  I think we visited the biggest, the tallest and the smallest on Monday!
The wife was on her last day of vacay and I had a dog walk job with Nook and...Maxie.
Maxie's owners need to be careful:  I love her so much I want to kidnap her!  She is a soft medium sized Lab mix who reminds me of a doggish teddy bear....
we walked with Nook and Maxie to Ithaca Falls, the biggest waterfall in Ithaca that comes from Fall Creek which is also in our back yard--those dogs have thick coats, and the falls gorge is so cool and they can go swimming....then later?  Taughannock State Park (highest falls in the northeastern US!) on our way up to Cayuga Creamery!  Cayuga Creamery was named New York state's number one homemade ice cream, and they are so smart they make dairy free ice cream, gluten free cones AND they have a tiny little gorge of their own with a tiny waterfall, and picnic tables...it was 93 degrees and a lot of people were visiting for ice cream...they all sat in the sun!  We thought we would be fighting to sit by the cool waterfall but we were alone down there....crazy huh? GREAT way to spend a hot summer day!  Take care of yourselves...

The waterfalls are beautiful how lucky you are to be able to take full advantage of their grace.

I never realized how much I could love waterfalls, until we did some exploring in WI last summer.

Looks like you had an amazing time. A great way to beat the heat.
