This weekend, T. and I were hiking down at Taughannock Falls State Park, as we are wont to do. We’d frozen half a water bottle full of water, as we are also wont to do, and then poured in water to fill, but this time, the half-liter of water really wasn’t enough for the day, and I was carrying around a half-liter of ice and wishing it to melt faster.
We’re in the habit of picking up a few piece of litter every time we go out walking, so I wasn’t thinking about it when I bent down to pick up the bottle of Poland Springs floating in the creek.
The entirely sealed, full, new bottle of Poland Springs Water.
Sometimes life is just fun.

This is the creek way up above the Falls I posted yesterday, a nice mostly-flat stroll we took any number of times this past summer.

This was mid-summer, when we walked there maybe three times a week.

This was one of the hottest days I can remember this past summer; we (Abjuk, E.Mc, T., and I) did a craft fest in Rhinbeck and then hiked this – the ice caves were absolutely wonderful after the heat.
Taughannock Falls is about a mile from our back door; this tree overlooks the falls on the path.

The pond was sproinging with these little things; we’d walk a foot and another would hop into the lake with a noise like a rubber-band banjo. T. managed to catch a picture of one.
Nice park. We will go there again when the road clears.
