Vince Goes to Buffalo yet Again
Labor Day weekend! A long weekend for everyone except Cornell students it
seems. For the weekend I went out with Kristina to Buffalo to help
her family carry heavy objects around (and have fun too of course).
Before leaving we finally got to see the
rock museum in Snee Hall. To make it more exciting they were
taking some gems out to be appraised, giving the feeling of jewel heist
Kristina and I decided to take the scenic route to Buffalo. We first
went to the Watkins Glen area in order to obtain cheese from the same
place mentioned in this former trip.
On the way there we stopped at Hector Falls. Very pretty due to all
of the rain recently.
We managed to end up on the wrong road looking for Cheese. Luckily I caught
it in time and we hopped from 14 over to 414 and found the place.
We stopped at Deckertown Falls. This one is well hidden and the parking
area looks like it could be someone's driveway. We were in a bit of a rush
so only saw the lower two falls; the much more impressive one was a steep
and strenuous hike.
We took a roundabout way to I-90. Through Penn Yan where there was an
unexpected Amish prescence. We decided to try to see as many of the Finger
Lakes as possible.
- Cayuga Lake [pictured previously] (near Ithaca)
- Seneca Lake (near Watkins Glen)
- Keuka Lake (near Penn Yan)
- Canadigua Lake (near Canadigua)
We made it to Buffalo safely and had a productive weekend packing and such.
Unfortunately the Maryland weather tagged along: hot and humid. But we
did get to go swimming which made up for the weather.
And alas, my summer ends, with classes already started and busy months ahead!
Little Girl (the guinea pig) is quite happy that she gets to stay in one
place for the forseeable future though.
