Last week, on March 7, Bill Hecht took pictures of the Cayuga Lake area from an airplane, including some shots of Taughannock Falls State Park on the west shore of the lake.
This is what the waterfall looked like in February from the Falls Overlook on Taughannock Park Road. Taughannock Falls, at 215 feet, is one of the tallest waterfalls in the East and drops more than Niagara Falls.
And looking from the west; this view gives a good feel for how Taughannock Creek eroded the gorge and deposited the eroded rock and soil into Cayuga Lake, creating Taughannock Point.
Taughannock Falls Gorge Trail is one of the few trails in area gorges that remain open in the winter. It’s a beautiful day, so why not do a little hiking?
