Six Mile Creek Watershed

The Six Mile Creek Watershed in Ithaca has it origins in the Caroline community and reflects much of the glaciation that was prominent in this area. It spans the very rural communities in Caroline to the very urban in the city of Ithaca, where the creek flows behind the library and eventually into the Cayuga Inlet.

I took a walk today to photograph the creek and some wildflowers.  After two hours of crawling on the ground to get some good shots, I ran out of digital space and returned home.  The photos include two types of ferns with their opening fiddle heads, Dutchman's Breeches, May Apples, and Jack in the Pulpits.
