Winter Has Come and Gone

Taughannock Falls, March 2016

Most years, at the end of March, the trail to the base of the Taughannock Falls is littered with ice falls and giant icicles hanging from the highest overhanging rocks. The trail usually has pockets of deep hardened snow. This year Spring arrived early. The trails are clear, upper and lower. There are precious few icicles anywhere in the gorge at this point. In the image above, the snow patch on the right will be gone in a day or two. Spring is most certainly early this year.

Winter Went Where

I had all sorts of things I wanted to say about how warm it has been this winter... thoughts about how incredibly cold it was the day I took this photo.... and then I thought: nah.
