Enjoying our summer home.

Pratt falls, great place to hike and picnic, and only about 40 minutes from us.

bike ride to Ithaca with kristy and Shane   

Taughannock Falls is located in Ulysses, NY, part of the popular Finger Lakes Region of central New York. The falls is part of Taughannock State Park located between the Village of Trumansburg and the city of Ithaca. The falls cataract has an incredible drop of 215 feet (66 meters), and is one of the highest east of the Rocky Mountains.

Tinker Falls is about 20 minutes from us.The falls is simple but quite pleasant. The water free-falls 20 feet over an overhanging ledge to the rocks below, before continuing its journey into Labrador Hollow. The nature of the falls allows one to get behind the waterfall, although this must be done with caution.

We not only hiked to the falls but enjoyed a mile climb to the top of the mountain  to see a beautiful site of the valleys below.
