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

Looking upstream from the top of one of the Twin Falls. This is the smaller fall and this is seen from the trail off the roadside. There is another much larger fall on the other side not viewable from the main rd. I guess at one time there was a mill here where you can see the stone wall.

looking down stream over to the falls

We found a spot further down the road that we were able to get a great view of both falls

Not the greatest panoramic shot, the one white is a bit hot in the one pic, but you can see both of them together. I didn't have a wide angle lens for my nikon

Wow that's cool! :up: How long of a hike from the road is this? And do you think you can pinpoint these on a map? I might try to swing by one or two on my way up or back home.

These are just past a gate on a dirt road. All in all there are 8 or 9 falls on or just off the Tooley Pond Rd between Degrasse and Clare. The main road is County Rt 27 and Tooley Pond Rd is right off 27. I have photos off the entrance to all the falls on the road, some have small signs nailed to trees. The longest hike might have been a little over half a mile with some being right off the road or close to it.

ok here is a question... why are most of my photos here being cropped on the right hand side? Are the linked images just too large for the forum page?

That would be my guess.

Yes, when pictures are too wide for the page, they get cropped. You can either downsample them (I try to make the widest dimension 7 inches at 96 dpi) or use the img2 tag instead of the regular img tag. The toolbar in the forum post page has the img2 tag set up, just click the button and paste in the URL for the picture. Like so:



Like this with the spaces removed: [ img2 ]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y108/RedCatLady/Grasse%20River%20Waterfalls/073.jpg[ /img2 ]

That will scale the image down to fit and then you can click on it to view the larger image in a new window.

Nice shots by the way, will have to add these to the "to-do" list.
