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.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
