Deep in the gorge above the main waterfall at Buttermilk Falls State Park in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, an area with a mixture of evergreens and deciduous trees provides striking autumn color next to the cascade.

The Finger Lakes are a pattern of lakes in the west-central section of Upstate New York in the United States. The lakes originated as a series of northward-flowing streams. Many creeks and streams, interspersed by numerous waterfalls, traverse steep gorges to feed the lakes with water from rain and snowmelt. The eleven Finger Lakes from east to west are: Otisco Lake, Skaneateles Lake, Owasco Lake, Cayuga Lake, Seneca Lake, Keuka Lake,Canandaigua Lake, Honeoye Lake, Canadice Lake, Hemlock Lake, and Conesus Lake. Cazenovia Lake to the east, although smaller, is sometimes called "the twelfth Finger Lake. Oneida Lake, to the northeast of Syracuse, New York, is sometimes included as the "thumb," although it is shallow and somewhat different in character from the rest. The Finger Lakes area is New York's largest wine producing region, and the region has been designated the The Finger Lakes American Viticulture Area (AVA). Over 100 wineries and vineyards are located around Seneca, Cayuga, Canandaigua, Keuka, Conesus and Hemlock lake. Because of the lakes' great depth, they provide a lake effect to the lush vineyards that flank their shores. The area is also known for education, with well known institutions of higher learning including ivy league Cornell University in Ithaca, Ithaca College also in Ithaca, and Wells College in Aurora. Other nearby New York State Parks include Taughannock Falls State Park, Watkins Glen State Park, Filmore Glen State Park, Long Point State Park, and Robert H. Treman State Park.
