Columbus day weekend (Sunday and Monday) we drove to the Finger Lakes region in New York State.  Spent most of the time in and around Ithaca.  Our main objective was to photograph some of the region’s waterfalls with some foliage as a bonus.

Taughannock Falls is located in Ulysses, NY, within  Taughannock State Park.  Noted as the highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains with a drop of 215 feet. Niagra Falls is about 170 feet.  The image is from the base of the falls in the gorge.  You need to hike about 45 minutes to get to the base of this waterfall. For the non hiking photographer there is a viewing deck and a parking lot that gives you an elevated view of the falls and the gorge.
