Waterfalls of New York State 100+ Challenge, Dig the Falls, part 2, The Hudson Valley Region

Waterfalls of New York State 100+ Challenge, Dig the Falls, part 2, The Hudson Valley Region For more information on this challenge click here To purchase “Waterfalls of New York State”, click here  To purchase “A Waterfall Guide to Letchworth State Park” by Scott A. Ensminger and Douglas K. Bassett, click here

The following list is the first set of locations listed in the book “Waterfalls of New York State” by Scott A. Ensminger (Western New York Waterfall Survey), David J. Schryver (Northern New York Waterfalls) and Edwards M. Smathers (Dig the Falls) Be sure to check them out! I myself have personally contributed a lot of waterfall location information to both Mr. Edward Smathers and Mr. David Schryver. I am currently a team member with “Dig the Falls”. The simple rules of this challenge, is to visit 100 waterfall locations in the book. One location may have several waterfalls, but counts as one location. Click on the links (I have visited) in the boxes below, which will take you to additional information pages.

As you will notice, I really have to work on my Southern Waterfalls! Jump on over to Digthefalls for additional information on the other waterfalls listed here below.
