I almost added all of these photos to the law school reunion post, but decided Ithaca’s gorges needed to stand alone. The pun seems silly at first, at least to me. All these shirts and mugs and bumper stickers and all kinds of things claiming that “Ithaca is Gorges!” But then we hiked two and I totally got it! Ithaca in generally is a lovely town, but the gorges are so, so beautiful!
On Friday morning, Sean and I hiked Buttermilk Falls. It was a great hike and the perfect day for it! We heard it had been raining in Ithaca for days before we arrived. The whole weekend we lucked out with beautiful weather. It caught Sean a little by surprise. He’s used to Ithaca being very cloudy. Similar to our recent date for my birthday, we had a really great time being together. Chatting and planning about things. We love Wes so much, but it is just so nice to have these opportunities to just be us. I know I already said this, but I just always feel so grateful for these moments with Sean.
On Saturday morning we were joined by Sarah, a classmate and good friend of Sean’s who also lives in DC, for a hike around Lucifer Falls in Treman State Park. Even though she lives close by and we do see her occasionally, it has been a little while so it was nice to catch up. She’s the one that suggested Lucifer Falls specifically and I’m so glad she did! The pictures don’t do it justice at all! This was a beautiful hike. We were dressed for the law school’s lunch that day. We weren’t in the most sensible outfits or shoes, but we made it work. This hike was tougher for me, but we just took lots of breaks. Hiking while pregnant is apparently something I like to do. Although the last time I hiked while pregnant I had no idea!
Thanks for going to law school at Cornell so we could have a great trip 10 years later, Favorite!
