Cayuga Lake and Ithaca from the top of the Towers at Ithaca College, in Ithaca, NY in the Finger Lakes region. Cayuga Lake is the longest of the eleven Finger Lakes, 38 miles in length. You can only see about the southernmost 8 miles of the lake in this picture as it winds northward. Ithaca is also the home of Cornell University, which is on East Hill just out of view on the right side of this picture. Photo by Tony Ingraham, ithacafingerlakes.com.
