Warmer temperatures are bringing a lot of people out to see the falls, as the base trail today had more than its usual amount of traffic. Once I reached the falls shortly after noon, I was treated to a beautiful view of sun-soaked mist!
A sure sign of winter’s departure: the park has opened the stairs on the north rim trail, and the bottom half of the north rim trail. Now you can circumnavigate the rim without stepping out onto Gorge Road or the camp road. Happy hiking!
A beautiful morning for a hike: a great way to kick off a Monday. Taughannock was so quiet this morning. It was nice to be walking with the sun rising, lighting up the cliff walls and prompting the birds to take flight.
For those who like a taste of Taughannock, today’s a great day for it with the recent rain we’ve had!
