A note from the NYFalls.com 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 NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com 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

Falls at Deans Mill

Postby L_G_D » Tue Dec 01, 2009 8:15 pm

Another set of shots dug up during my film scanning project, I went to these in 1992 with my father. Dunn mentions these in the Hudson Valley book but says they are inaccessible. When I was there, I didn't notice any posted signs, and we just parked along the road and walked down. The situation could have easily changed since then, of course, considering I was there almost 20 years ago. Then again, my father knew many different people from his job and could very well have had permission to go in there, I don't really know. In any case, here's the shots I took back then, on semi-decent film with a semi-decent camera on a nice spring day.

From what I remember of these, the stream splits many times and flows around and over many drops along the course of the falls, so there's not one spot where you can see the whole thing.

No map since I don't know the accessibility situation, but a simple search on the town name will tell you where they are.

The rocks are striking. Would you say that was low flow?

I was only there the one time, so I have nothing to compare to, but I would say that's medium normal or a bit on the low side for water flow. I'm sure in the spring that's a real gusher.
