The Tail End -- Cornell & Niagara Falls

We left Boston early because we had a long 6 hour drive to Ithaca, NY to see Cornell. Clearly, by our lack of photos of the last few colleges, we were feeling the pull of home.

Cornell's campus reminded us a lot of BYU. Mixed architecture, wide open spaces. The view from the quad overlooking the valley was the most stunning view of any we'd seen. (I did make the boys get out of the car and look at it when they picked us up. But alas, no photos.)

The coolest thing about Cornell was their claim to fame building the smallest guitar and saxophone. They're so small you can't see it with the naked eye and you play the strings with molecules (somehow)!

After our tour, info session and lunch we drove another 3 hours to Niagara Falls. We got there just before dusk and the view from our hotel room was awesome! We stayed on the Canadian side because we'd heard the views from Canada were spectacular. They were. Fun accents too.
