This would make a nice vacation spot.
 
Taughannock

Taughannock Falls State Park's namesake waterfall is one of the outstanding natural attractions of the Northeast. Taughannock Falls plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge. Gorge and rim trails offer spectacular views from above the falls and from below at the end of the gorge trail. Campsites and cabins overlook Cayuga Lake, with a marina, a boat launch, and a beach nearby. A multi-use trail, for hiking and cross-country skiing, winds past sledding slopes and natural skating ponds. The park also offers organized activities, including tours through the Taughannock Gorge and summer concerts along the lakefront.

The name Taughannock, as one would guess, comes from Native American culture, although not from a local tribe. It is actually partly from the region of Delaware and tribes east. It’s a name passed through cultures that eventually stuck here. Several origins of the modern name can be hypothesized, but the most similar is a combination of the Onondaga for Dehennach and Algonquin for Taakhan. Taughannock roughly means “the great falls of the woods.”

A polar bear peers up from beneath the sea ice in the winning image of the 2013 National Geographic Photo Contest. See how photographer Paul Sounders captured the shot and get his advice to other wildlife photographers: http://on.natgeo.com/J8TdzS

Time to be home where at least my dogs appreciate me or at least pretend to.
