Finger Lakes NY area

Finger Lakes are located in the central of Upstate NY and obviously are called so because of their shape –long and narrow.

This are is known as the Wine cellar of NY and of its dramatic landscape mainly gorges and waterfalls.

In one gorge I counted 12 waterfalls walking just 2 miles,some of the scenery reminds places from S.America,the gorge high walls are covered with vegetation and some rock formation look like an architectural work.

Entering this S.P you only have to drive a short distance from a big city like Ithaca and suddenly in a minutes you feel like entering another world .

When walking at the bottom of the of the gorge every turn opens a new window to unbelievable sight ,and although the water flow was not strong like in the Autumn still the power of nature is remarkable.

The sound of the waterfalls and the smells of wet wood and moss adds to the whole picture and brings a special atmosphere to the place.

I wish I could bring some sounds and smells from this place as pictures alone are diminishing this extra ordinary place.

Autumn colors are starting to show and one can only imagine how this place looks in full foliage.
