on the way

the second fall outing of the year was a revisit to the finger lakes region of western new york state. you may recall that the first getaway to the tobermory, ontario area was met with nasty weather at times and a lackluster autumn colour change. i wish i could say this was better – it was not. the weather was wet and rainy the entire weekend long…

she-qua-ga falls in the village of montour falls was a dud. watkins glen was not much better – at the end of october, the colours had not come close to changing in a meaningful way, but a lot of trees were indeed leafless. that was our first day in the area.

the second day was basically a downpour for hours on end and made touring an impossibility. the third day was a tad better – the rain let up for the afternoon…

the centrepiece of the trip, as it were, was meant to be taughannock falls just outside of ithica, new york. to the extent that we were not rained out, i was able to get some decent photographs of this majestic waterfall and area.

this photograph was taken on the trail toward the falls along the taughannock creek in the taughannock gorge within taughannock falls state park.

lakeside tree

Lakeside Tree

a long-awaited trip to watkins glen in the finger lakes region of new york state finally materialized this past fall. i had driven through the region in the past and remember the charm of the towns that we passed through. this short trip however, was for visiting the watkins glen state park and for photographing it.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found this tree at the waterfront.
