deep and narrow

most of the write-ups on the robert h. treman state park refer to enfield glen as the deep and narrow gorge to be found there…

we spent most of the afternoon at taughannock falls state park and still had a couple of hours of daylight left when we decided to visit lucifer falls, the 115 waterfall showpiece of this state park. we had no expectations as we did not know what to expect… a feast for the eyes is appropriate. 

having parked in the upper parking lot, we made our way along the trails that led to the aforementioned gorge. just as you enter the gorge, you are greeted by this magnificent sight of enfield creek and the tall rock walls that lead to lucifer falls a few minutes downstream.

prelude to the upper falls

from the overlook view point area at taughannock falls state park, the trails carry on to give different views yet of taughannock falls. the views, depending on the season, will be obstructed by varying degrees.

further on still along the trails you can reach the black diamond trail that will give views of the upper falls. unfortunately, the guard rails are extremely high and composing a shot of the upper falls is difficult. 

this shot is just to the right of the upper falls with a partial view of the jacksonville road bridge over the taughannock creek.

down the creek

the winds were picking up and the mist was constantly flying onto the lens, so i turned 180 degrees and got this shot of the taughannock creek with some fall foliage.

falls to rapids 1 & 2

this is what we came for! taughannock falls on a cold and misty day; but at least the rain stayed away for the afternoon… two versions to choose from!
