Bobbieswaterfalls, Improvements 2-19-2017

Just an update! I am still working on a lot of background improvements and changes to the website. At times there will be locations, or sections, that are unavailable. I have learned so much in the past few weeks, regarding pages, posts etc. Background work is more than I ever thought. The steps it takes to set up a proper working website that until now never understood their functions. So, hang in there, check back often. Thanks for all you patience as I work through it all.

For all you “Waterfall Lover’s” out there!

It is time for me to announce to the world (some folks already know), some commitments I have made not only to my personal website, but also to bigger and better attachment to the waterfall communities.

First, I had been asked if I would like to join the  “Digthefalls” team, and I have accepted and along with that opened up new responsibilities and commitments.
www.digthefalls.com

In case you did not know, Digthefalls also has a partnership with Field Trip, creator of the Field Trip App. If you have not yet joined you may do so here
http://www.fieldtripper.com/

Another New important announcement was the “New York State Waterfall Coalition”
Check this out here
https://newyorkstatewaterfalls.com/

My personal website here, will still follow my personal simple basic structure. Links and pages will be live for those waterfall locations I personally visited. I am slowly moving towards listing all the waterfall locations that I have had on my personal private, compiled list of 20 plus years. Which I am sure may have wrong information, until confirmed.

Anyone that I have on my Resource page, please check back and confirm that they are still most current and up to date! Also check my Other Link Resources to.

I am behind on my “Other States” waterfall lists, but will continue adding and posting them.

I am excited about new opportunities, new friends, new projects and most of all utilizing my self-worth in something I value more than almost everything!! WATERFALLS!!

Feel free to checkout http://www.cafepress.com/bobbieswaterfalls
I will continue adding products as I sort out my best photos!!

Roadtrip on 4-29-2015 to Onondaga County Area

Today’s roadtrip consisted of checking out some new locations for me. I used google imagery to first locate possible falls. Some of these locations are already well known, but new to me.

Cedar Bay Park, Ononadaga County, New York

This is part of the Old Erie Heritage Canal

This one is called Coye Road (falls on), Ononadaga County New York

the only view is from the roadside as it is private property on both sides. There was no real good photo opportunity for this one.
