In May 1992 while driving through New York state on the way to Niagara Falls I stopped briefly at Taughannock Falls . There are several ways of viewing the falls. There is a free parking area on the rim of the canyon below the falls adjacent to an overlook. Further downstream there is pay parking for the gorge trail which leads upstream about a mile to the base of the falls. As I was in a bit of a rush I just took some pictures from the overlook opposite the falls. They came out rather well considering I was using my old Kodak 110 camera and they were into the sun a bit.
