Winter-Scape Taughannock Falls

The recent snow and frigid air may keep some people inside, but a friend and I decided to venture to Taughannock Falls to view the winter-scape. Taughannock Falls is located just North of Ithaca and is 215 ft tall which makes it the highest single waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains.

The falls can be viewed from a lookout just North of the falls, which provides a spectacular view of the small portion of Taughannock creek just before it flows over the waterfall.  On this day, we saw several people (yes, those dots are people) exploring the snow shelf that formed on top of the creek below.

After a brief stop at this venue, we went to the park entrance at the base of the falls and took a short walk into the park to view them from this angle.  While this was a bitter cold day, we were not the only ones in the park.  We encountered families with dogs taking a walk as well as a few other photographers.

Despite the cold, we had an enjoyable day.

Lessons from a Senior Dog

Nancy Kieffer

Working as a pet photographer as well as volunteering in a rescue, I have been blessed with getting to know a number of senior dogs. While I lost my Midnight at a young age, I was very fortunate to have Shamus with me for many years. Shamus was my clown, but boy did he know how to live! His wisdom grew as the years pressed on. I learned that each day spent with my senior dog was a lesson on the importance of living in the present, cherishing our bond and embracing our everlasting friendship.
