One weekend when visiting the Buffalo History Museum, I noticed the cherry blossoms in the Japanese Gardens of Buffalo just outside of the museum were budding. I took note to try to come back in a couples weeks to see them in bloom. One night while driving home from dinner out, at Kuni’s sushi restaurant oddly enough, we spotted that the cherry blossoms were in bloom! At dusk right before the rain I took these photos.
One of the first nice days of the year meant the first hike of the year. A new hiking trail app pointed me to Akron Falls in Akron, NY just a short drive from Buffalo. It was a very short hike and very easy; a little trail in Akron’s park. But any trail that leads to a waterfall is a good trail in my book.
