Cornell Plantations is an area of great natural beauty and serenity adjacent to one of America's most renowned university campuses. Plantations Road runs through much of the area, including the 150 acres of Newman Arboretum and Arboretum Meadows, the site of this quiet pond. Parking a stone's throw away. The surrounding natural areas include 3000 acres of bogs, fens, gorges, glens, meadows, and woodlands. No wonder so many caches are hidden here.
