|Taughannock Falls - the tallest in New York at 215 feet, 33 taller than Niagara (about .5% of the flow)
|Shequaga Falls behind a private home - we weren't looking for it.
|Looking for and not finding Eagle Cliffs Falls.
|One of three failed attempts to find Aunt Sarah's Falls
If you look at the map you might agree with Bill's skepticism about where I've brought us! Aside from really liking the name and wanting to check it out, I have a surprise day trip planned for Bill. Our original route took us much closer, but when I made changes I wasn't willing to give up this adventure. So Tuesday morning we head northeast, for about 55 miles. Bill has no clue, he's going to be so surprised!!
|Chronological exhibits of photos, artifacts and information lead us through the three days.
|Several places on the festival grounds became impromptu messaging centers. I hope Cindy and Dan found each other!
|The list of performers still blows my mind!
|More than one bus and mini bus made their way to Yasgur's Farm - this one was actually there :-)
|While we know this bus could tell a lot of stories from that time - it now tells the story of how 400,000 attendees and performers made their way to Bethel, New York, with a film that plays on the windshield. Sit in the bus for the ride.
|In addition to the concert grounds, the festival had a myriad of booths and camps in the surrounding woods.
|A recent addition to the Bethel Woods complex is a series of trails through the sites of the booths and camps that have been identified from photos taken during the festival.
|The original concert location - this field made history in 1969.
|Only the best for Bill's special day!
|None of the regular street signs remain as people keep stealing them. They even grease this one to stop theft.
|More than one story makes up the lore surrounding this 6 miles. Original residents were bandits who settled their differences with murder for over a decade. Also in the 1850's recurring incidents of malaria lead to a large number of deaths.
|The kind of place you can make up your own stories.
|Along the road is Ghost Lake (of course), full of water lilies and small fish.
|The toads hidden from view made us laugh every time it sounded like an old man saying "Hey!"
|Surprised to see a herd of beautiful long-horns.
|I'm betting their horns are 3 feet long :-)))
|Skytop Lodge - one of many resorts where folks escape NYC to come play.
|View of the Catskill Mountains from Camelback Mountain in Big Pocono State Park
|To the east of the Plateau is Wind Gap
|Closed on weekdays, when the Cattell Cabin was built in 1908 it remained unlocked for years for use by anyone needing shelter. Many names are carved in the large wood ceiling beams in the one room cabin.
|Layers of dense foliage.
|Delaware River in the Delaware Water Gap.
|A gnarly burl along the Smithfield Beach Trail.
Tuesday we continue south for a week in the Philadelphia area - hoping for wider roads and cooler temps!
|Excited to see Penelope and Reese in a few weeks!
|Ezra and Elliott making memories in Ezra's space ship from kindergarten.
