Kaaterskill Falls

View from Kaaterskill Falls
Haines Falls, NY

We had a chance today to practice our new found iPhone skills at the top of Kaaterskill Falls. If you are scared of heights this might not be the place for you. This falls drops precipitiously some 260 ft. You literally can stand on a ledge and see the water drop below. This in no place for the feint of heart or the not so sure footed.

Although the leaves have not completely peaked, the color is beginning to get brighter each day. Hopefully, this provides an opportunity to venture out there more than once this week. I truly want to take it all in.

The leaves today had that sweet autumnal smell.  Their fragrance is almost as sweet as the sugar maple these trees produce in the spring. For those who grew up in the northeast, you are all to familiar with these nostalgic fall smells. The familiar smells so sweet.
