Wednesday last I enjoyed shuffling along a forest carpet along the South Rim Trail of Taughannock Falls Park. It is a lost pleasure now the first snow is with us.

On the Edge

An Autumn Revalation

After leaf fall abrupt emptiness of Taughannock Falls is visible from the south rim. Beyond, you can just make out the enormous carved limestone slabs that protect visitors from the constant infall from the gorge walls allowing them to approach the falls.

A Feast

Thanksgiving Comes Early

Oaks are plentiful on the south rim of Taughannock Falls State Park, Finger Lakes Region of New York. Here a table is set. See my post “Cuteness Break” for one celebrant of of this amply set table.

Glowing Leaves

Holding On

The oak holds tight to leaves, sometimes until spring when new growth pushes last year’s off. Here is a cluster on a bright November afternoon hanging above the South Rim trail of Taughannock Falls Park of the New York State Finger Lakes Region.
