Chittenango Falls, New York

One of my all time favorite waterfalls, these tumble 167 feet down over 400-million year old limestone cliffs. These falls are located near the town of Chittenango, NY, hometown of L. Frank Baum who wrote The Wizard of Oz :)

“Chittenango” means “where waters run North” and comes from the language of the Oneida people of the First Nations (one of the five founding tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy). “Oneida” or Onayotekaonotyu means “People of the Standing Stone”.
