Our First Ithaca Adventure

Clearly this will be the first of many exciting experiences in Ithaca. We're slowly approaching the end of June, and our move to Ithaca can't come soon enough! We went back to Ithaca two weekends ago, so that Amit could sign his contract. Of course we made a weekend out of it. In addition to a very fun evening at the Glacier Gala, we fit in a morning hike at Buttermilk Falls.

The falls are actually about a 5 minute drive from our new house, so we'll definitely be hiking there often. I'm so excited to be living in a town that's so close to fresh produce, grass-fed meat, and most importantly, gorgeous hiking trails! They say that Ithaca is gorges, and it really is! Here are some of my favorite photos from our hike. It was so hard to decide which I liked best!

We actually started at the top and hiked down along the water.
On the way to the largest falls, 
we saw a lot of beautiful, smaller ones.
At the top of the falls...
...and the bottom.
The climb up was tough! 
We need to start training for these gorges,
we'll be getting some great workouts!
Last one.
I love the way the walls were carved out. 

Oops... I lied. Here's a picture we took while sitting in the sun on Cayuga Lake on Saturday, before the gala. Yep, I think we're going to LOVE living here! Ready to visit yet?

If you wanted to see the rest of the pictures, try this link. I'm trying to decide between Snapfish and Shutterfly for storage, so I figured I would see if this works.
