We still got wet now and again so time for drying our gear out in the sunshine was appreciated.
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is in Ithaca, a very cool town in the Finger Lakes area , and is a place we've both always wanted to go.
Waterfalls are quite abundant in the Finger Lakes area and we marveled at their beauty and power.
European Skipper enjoying all the recent moisture:
Beautiful fields filled with bobolinks, common yellowthroats, blackbirds and butterflies interspersed with woodlands and agricultural areas offered us great sightings on the Finger Lakes Trail.
While exploring we often meet interesting people that inspire us and this trip proved no exception. Thank you Arthur and Cheryl for sharing your time with us! We so enjoyed crossing paths and hope your return to Canada was filled with more adventure.
We enjoyed our time exploring new places and when this is posted, we will be returning from the Rocky Mountains so anticipate more exploration photos soon.
