Originally written and published on my blog, A Year in Taipei on July 3rd, 2006. (Note: all photos in this post are ones I took 2006. If they’re low res or grainy, it’s either because it was my first-ever digital camera, or because the high-res versions have been lost since then. Consider them…retro.)
Today I took about two hours from studying (Mandarin Chinese at Cornell University) to go to Treman State Park, just outside of Ithaca. It was really beautiful.
There are twelve waterfalls along about six miles or so of trails. My classmate Brandon and I walked what I thought was going to be two miles, but I think may actually have been less than that. We saw four or five waterfalls, including the biggest one (115 feet high) shown in the picture above.
Brandon, our classmate Dave, and I are going to get together later tonight to review things for class tomorrow. Studying with other people is really helpful for me, so I’m looking forward to it.
In the meantime…back to studying!
More About Treman State Park
(Note: what follows is a 2015 addendum to my original blog post, above.)
Robert H. Treman State Park is the home of Enfield Glen, a large gorge in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The 115-foot tall waterfall that we saw that day is called Lucifer Falls. There are nine miles of hiking trails in the park, and in the summer, there’s also swimming in a stream-fed pool beneath a waterfall.
The park is open year-round, and vehicle-entry fees apply from mid-April through mid-October. It’s a short 15-minute drive from Cornell University to the park.

I wrote more than 300 blog posts during my year in Taipei, Taiwan. I don’t know yet how many of those posts I’ll recreate on MilliGFunk.com, but for now, at least, you can come back each Thursday for a #ThrowbackThursday to my #YearInTaipei.
