A note from the founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with and into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Yeah, i had to reserach it for a while to figure out what it was. Liking more and more the struggle/beauty of nature pics.

This is a waterfall I have always admired. Maybe cause so few waterfalls in NYS you travel west for. It is all by it self. Close to the prison. Short hike, but the last 100 feet are tough. It didn't help that there was a sign in that last 100 feet spray painted: "DANGER, ground bees." There is rope, but maybe you bring your own if you bring gear.

That's a great blue. Gravity finally found this heron. What a place to rest.

I last saw it in 2003, so it may be gone now. We were there a few weeks ago but didn't bother trying to get to the base of the main falls.

Got a chance to go to the Cascades of Attica yesterday. I couldnt find all 5, that I've read about...but the main falls was pretty spectacular and made the drive worth while. Access to the bottom of the gorge is risky and takes some nerves of steel-and coming back up is pretty sketchy too. There were local kids (young) that were hanging around the ridge while we were down in the gorge, they began throwing rocks down the waterfall despite seeing us there. We yelled at them, and could not find them by the time we scurried up the steep walls to get out. Definately worth the trip...just wish we had gotten there earlier as the lighting was very hard to work with it.

There's the small 15 footer that's in the picture. Then there's a giant 60-80 foot falls a bit downstream from that that spills into a deep gorge. There's a small cascade similar to the upper falls that's below the large one. We did not climb down into the gorge on Sunday to see that one. The fourth one may be the one upstream from the bridge that you posted an aerial shot of. We didn't see that because the land on that side of the road was heavily posted.

35 mpg is awfully slow for a climb that steep.
i have in my log here that this site has 4 falls. is that right?

Taken on Sunday:

The upper falls...

We didn't go down to the base of the main falls. I know there's a rope you can use to get down there. At least there was last time I was here many years ago.

An interesting sign we saw along the way. The town must have run out of "truck going uphill" signs. :)
