Park guys take our trash for us which was nice.  TF is a carry in, carry out park with no trash barrels.
AM hike to Falls

· plants and trees - good signage and explanations
· geology - sandstone, shale, limestone - used to be ancient seabed

Paul had rash - swimmers’ itch?
Pete and Lisa and Kids visit:
· brought provisions
· 2nd walk to Falls - ½ hr. up, 2 hrs. down
· cookout with marshmallows
· 6 year old girls needed ice packs because of back pain because they were "pregnant"
Paul rented fishing pole

Ithaca fireworks

  • continuous wake from boat traffic returning afterwards rocked us for an hour, 
  • boat traffic sounded like a freight train
