 Green Lakes State Park, Day 2

I went for a morning walk down to the lake - it really is green, not from algae, but because of minerals.  It is also a Meromictic lake, which describes a lake that the surface water does not mix with the water in the lower levels.  This is what makes it a very clear lake & gives it its green color.   Some photos from an afternoon visit:

The beach is closed, but there was lots of people out walking around the lake.  I've never been here, but it looks like a popular beach during the summer.

We also made a stop at Chittenango Falls, one of my favorite waterfalls.  The least amount of water going over the falls that I've ever seen, and too much direct sunlight for good photos, but here are a couple:

Back at the campground we had Impossible Burgers & corn on the cob for lunch.  I have to say I like the Impossible Burger a bit better than the Beyond Burger, although both are an interesting alternative to beef.

We spent the afternoon sitting around reading.  My current book is a series of books about a character named John Milton by Mark Dawson, a British author that publishes on line.  The character is similar to Reacher in Lee Child's books.  Not quite as well written, but well worth reading if you like the genre.  Latest was #6 in the series - Salvation Row.

Dinner was Shrimp Scampi.

Until Tomorrow -
