I finally made it to Ithaca and Cornell University, somewhere I've been hoping to see for some time now. It was a perfect time of year to visit, it was fall in full swing. The colors were beautiful, and we got to take a field trip through the steep gorges of the finger lakes area. These were impressively steep-walled, tectonically controlled valleys, which reminded me that old terrains don't necessarily mean there is no topography. Note that at the beginning I got some appropriate photographs from the airplane window of specular reflections on lake surfaces. Many thanks to Alex Hayes for organizing a fantastic meeting and visit to Ithaca!
