After the Rains, Ithaca, New York, USA

Recent rains have swollen the water in the gorges beyond normal. This view is from the suspension bridge that crosses Fall Creek on the Cornell University campus. Since the 1880's, Cornell has used hydroelectric power to provide energy for the campus. The power plant at left has generated electricity for more than a hundred years.

The suspension bridge is encased in wire netting to prevent any would-be jumpers.

At the bottom of Fall Creek at Ithaca Falls, the increased water flow has swollen the creek well beyond its normal boundary.

Normally, the area where all these trees are underwater is rocky dry land.

And Buttermilk Falls looks more like milkshake falls with so much water churning its way down the gorge.

Likewise, Wells Falls (aka Businessman's Lunch Falls) on Six Mile Creek roars loudly through its gorge with the increased water.
