Buttermilk Falls State Park, New York


"Buttermilk Falls" State Park, Ithaca, New York. Such a gorgeous area. We had our lunch there. What a view. The waterfall is so loud & right within the city. Such a great hiking spot.

Would you please consider watching the video below to see how powerful this waterfall really is ...we got up close & personal while on the hike. Just so you know New York does not do well in calculating the amount of mileage this hike is actually (or what they share on their signage) ...so be prepared to know it is longer than they say kind of hike. We were sweating & totally wishing we had taken water. We know better for next time. Here in Virginia if we say it is 1/2 mile hike, you will darn sure it is a 1/2 mile hike. Maybe they measure different in other state, no clue??! Beth ( :

Sorry they exaggerated the shortness of the hike.. Let this be a lesson to not always believe waht you read. ;))

There are a few places we've been where the length of the hike has been greatly understated. Kind of frustrating! But what beauty! I love waterfalls.

What a bummer about the hike being longer then you expected but oh my to see that stunning falls would have been worth it. Loved the video.

LOUD . . Really LOUD . . . maybe the counters could not think properly because
this water was So LOUD . . they either mis-communicated or got confused . . . Or, maybe They only walked a half mile . . . so that's what they posted . . .

maybe they meant to write - "Dear Beth, we only managed a half mile, it was so loud, we went home for a glass of water." Love, the sign people.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
