Ithaca is Gorges!


If you ever find yourself in Ithaca, NY be sure to check out Robert H. Treman State Park. The park offers long and short hikes along well maintained trails, 12 waterfalls, swimming, picnicking grounds, camping, a playground and bathroom facilities. 

Ithaca was a last minute detour on our way home from visiting my alma mater Syracuse University. It was the perfect ending to a fantastic weekend. We walked around the SU campus, ate our faces off at Dinosaur BBQ, took the kids on a bike ride along Lake Onondaga, explored one of the Finger Lakes in Skaneateles, NY and even swam in our hotel pool it was so warm. We left feeling like there was so much more we would love to do and see. The Cayuga Nature Center is on our list in Ithaca. We love NY State!

My husband and I have been to Ithaca. A bunch of crazy kids were jumping off some of those waterfalls jumping into very small openings in the water. We couldn't believe the were still alive much braver than I.

Yes, New York is a wonder. From corner to corner you've got the mountains, the lakes, the beaches, Niagra Falls, small quaint towns and then THE CITY itself, which is beyond compare. Or as Alicia Keyes puts it: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/258570/december-15-2009/alicia-keys---empire-state-of-mind--part-ii--broken-down. She rocks, and Stephen Colbert is a riot. Envious of your trip. Girls & I will be in NY on Saturday! Ah, summer - we love you.
