Trumansburg Creek Mood of the Day: In Exile
It’s Trumansburg Creek, but is it in Trumansburg?
Sadly, no, we cannot even say that this portion of Trumansburg Creek is in Tompkins County. It’s in in that little corner of Seneca County that we go through as we head out toward route 89 from the end of Cayuga Street – even if we’re headed south to Ithaca.
Still, it’s smacking right up against the Town of Ulysses, and so in order to be neighborly, I’ll post it up here in the Just Down The Road section.
What’s not shown in this video is the interesting pattern of accumulated animal tracks alongside this stretch of what comes to be called Frontenac Creek. It’s under the bridge of Route 89, and so the rain never washes the tracks out of the dust.
Some deer, and some small critters, seem to come that way, but most of all, the bank above the gorge seems to be visited by dogs with large paws. Go under the bridge and you’ll find my footprints for awhile too – until the rolling rovers run them over.
