A place to discuss waterfalls. Including the parks that house them and the hikes to get to them.
Too cool, Mark--Lively Run is right down the road from us! Great folks. Smith Woods is a very nice place. I'm very pleased that T-burg has committed to protecting this resource. Being right on Route 96, at the edge of the village, they could have easily opted to develop the area. T-burg has always been a progressive, proactive community. Many of my old hippy friends settled down there to raise families.

Scott, this is one of the best Taughannock Falls photos I have ever seen. Amazing!
Thanks Matt and Angel! With all the recent rains, the falls were flowing nicely. Couldn't even take a shot from the end of the trail due to all the mist getting all over the lens. Definitely a big difference from when I was there last year!
In my current activity of trying desperately to recover my images from a hard drive crash (making progress, outlook is optimistic), I found a nifty (I think) panorama I took at the overlook above the hairpin turn of the creek above the main falls. I forgot I had stitched this together, and it turned out pretty good. Since my images of the falls themselves can't hold a candle to the ones already posted, I figured this might be of some interest.
hmmm.... make sure to make your browser window as wide as possible to see it all.... Changed to img2 to make it fit & clickable..... better late than never....

Great job! I love making panoramas like that. It might be a good idea to crop out the hand and fence on the left though.

Thanks everyone. Yeah, the hand could get cropped off without losing much. I had thought of cropping the top fence rail, but that would have left off too much.
Ben and I visited T Falls in January on a warm sunny day after a nasty cold snap. These are some of the photos Ben took.
