Hermosa foto, da vértigo mirarla.
Muchas gracias Ermitri! May
Thank you, Alan! Luckily, we still have some snow, which does look nice around Christmas and New Year!
Thanks! :0) I hope to get some more cavern photos in the near future.
I grew up further north from Seneca Lake in Wayne County, not far from Lake Ontario. The Finger Lakes Region of New York is definitely a beautiful area. I've been through Yates County plenty of times. Great wine country indeed. :0)
Nice mountain scene. There aren't that many rocky tops in the Appalachian Range along the eastern U.S. near where I'm at, but more out west in the Rocky Mountains, the Cascades and Sierra Nevada. I need to get more fall foliage shots out in the mountains though, but this year, I plan on checking out the colors through the ditch trails of Great Dismal Swamp in Virginia. Hopefully, I didn't wait too long. Peaktime comes late here due to the warmer temperatures, but it's been windy the past couple days and more leaves are beginning to fall. There will be more pictures forthcoming. :0)
Hey Foxx, there are a lot of great waterfalls in the Troy area. The biggest ones are the Cohoes Falls, Barberville Falls, and the Poestenkill Falls. There are tons of smaller ones around too, including 2 great ones in Oakwood Cemetery. The one in this photo is a little hard to get to, you have to go a way down the drive of the Country Club of Troy, till it crosses a bridge. Immediately after crossing the bridge, the trail to these falls starts on the left side of the road. A full map of all the falls in Rensselaer County can be found here.
Thanks. :0) Unfortunately, due to the severe drought situation throughout much of the southeastern United States, fall foliage isn't expected to be as colorful as last year.
Thanks. :0) I probably won't go quite as far next hike...most likely to Mount Colden. I'd like to hike to Algonquin Peak, but that'll take about as much time as going to Mount Marcy not to mention a bit more difficult climb. This weekend, I'll be going to visit relatives in Alabama. I may stop by Table Rock State Park in South Carolina along the way, as it's not far from my travel route by Interstate 85. Nearby Sassafras Mountain, the highest point in the state, I heard is not worth the hike as it's a relatively easy climb and not much of a summit...just a USGS marker on top. Either way, there should be some decent fall foliage during that time.
