Beebe Lake, Ithaca

There is a quite path going around Beebe Lake, loved by joggers and walkers alike, where we took our first steps in discovering Ithaca.

We walked over Sackett Foot Bridge, named in honour of Colonel Henry Sackett, a Cornell student who donated a considerable amount of his personal wealth to build these paths and help preserve the natural beauty of the two nearby gorges – Cascadilla and Fall Creek.

We walked towards Triphammer Falls and the Beebe Dam, designed and built by Ezra Cornell, the very founder of Cornell University. The whole area, the falls, the dam, the lake, the path, are all part of the University campus. Can you think of a more scenic campus, anywhere?
