Tenant Creek Falls ~ Apr 29, 2011

Journal entry by Wanderer

Hello everyone, Welcome to the Crooked Canes Journal. Created by our very own Dave King the journal will allow everyone to share the experiences of our outings with everyone else in one consolidated format. This journal does not replace the Crooked Canes website but compliments it with trip reports and pictures. It is easy to use for the person posting either pictures or a trip report and eliminates the need to send pictures separately, saving download time and decreasing the number of emails being sent/received. I hope you like it and find it fun to use. As part of the first posting I have taken the liberty to include Lenore and Jacks trip report of the Tenant Creek Falls hike on April 29th, previously sent and added some pictures of my own.  Peter

"After a one day delay and a send off from Tom Gibbs, Dale, Don, Lenore and Jack drove to the Town of Hope, viewing a roaring Rock City Falls and the Sacandaga Reservoir lapping close to Route 30 along the way. There were no exposed stones in Stony Creek! Linda, Pete, and Jim R. met us at the trailhead. We hiked 6.6 miles to see some waterfalls that are pretty most of the time, but were spectacular today. The very full creek provided a sound track for our adventure. We encountered a few wet spots on the trail, but we easily crossed the streams that bisected our route. At the first waterfall, Pete and Linda's son caught up to us with another group. Small world! We ate lunch at the second falls, then hiked a few minutes to the third one. A ruffed grouse bade us farewell at the beginning of our ride home. We had a great day with pleasant, seasonable weather. The breeze and cooler temperatures kept the black flies away, but they've hatched and will be in vampire mode soon." Lenore and Jack
