Ca-yu-ga! Sounds like an old car horn. The named actually comes from the area's original inhabitants, a branch of the Iroquois Native-Americans.
While there, I'm dropping into the Taughannock Falls State Park which has biggest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains; it's taller than even Niagara Falls. I also plan to visit the city of Ithaca for the first time.
Have a fun weekend!
