Steve Schimmrich is a geologist and community college professor in a rural area of the mid-Hudson Valley of New York. All of the opinions expressed here are strictly his own. Sometimes he gets cranky and uses bad words.
Temperatures rose to 40° F Sunday, with blue skies, so the family took a walk to Awosting Falls at Lake Minnewaska State Park (we bought a state park pass this year, so any excuse to use it is good). The trail was a bit icy and slippery on the downhill sections which made for careful walking, but worth it for the beautiful view of the ice-coated waterfall.
Here I am with my daughter near the base of the falls.
