Waterfalls, Floods, and Trails

In this episode (#52) of Walk in the Park TV, we look at the pulse of water recent heavy rains have produced in waterfalls near Ithaca, NY, including nearly 20 waterfalls on the cliffs along the east shore of Cayuga Lake, water roaring through Buttermilk Glen in Buttermilk Falls State Park, and flood damage to Enfield Glen in Robert H. Treman State Park, also near Ithaca. We also take a trip out onto Cayuga Lake with the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom, and then go to Sunken Meadow State Park on the north shore of Long Island, NY.
