SIX MILE CREEK WATERFALL
ITHACA, NEW YORK
I'm always pleased to present things from the past. In upstate New York, gorgeous waterfalls and a watermill are slowly being reclaimed by nature.
A tour of Ithaca’s souvenir shops reveals no shortage of pride in its natural scenery, particularly its gorges. While many of the gorges are prohibited to swimmers because of their dangerous rapids, Six Mile Creek remains a safe alternative for nature lovers.
Nestled between Ithaca Commons and Cornell’s Collegetown, Six Mile Creek contains two main dams, aptly named First and Second Dam, that are a popular spot for locals and students alike. The waterfall feeds into a shallow brook that forms the perfect fishing spot, or just a place to observe the abundant wildlife.
Clancy's comment: It looks like a great place to fish.
