Black River Falls

Another one in Rensselaer County, this is a small waterfall on the Black River in the Capital District Wildlife Management Area, which surrounds Cherry Plain State Park.

A nice little side-by-side waterfall that sits near the foundation of an old mill of some type. Several of the streams in this area were used for industrial purposes at one time or another. All that remains now are some stones to mark where the buildings once stood.

Another one I had to scan film to get a pic. Not quite as old as the Barberville one, at least this was on decent film.

Russell Dunn has this one listed in his Hudson Valley Region Guide on pages 104-105.
