Excellent! I love that chunk of ice that hangs down over the top.

Those are great Wells!

I am both kicking myself and thrilled. Both at the same time! For years I've photographed the one falls near the outlet to Lost Pond. Today I explored further and disccovered that downstream from the one falls I've photographed there are several others. Springtime is the best to see these falls since there is so little water flowing at other times.

I decided to check this one out during my trip in June. The flow was rather weak and the light wasn't great.

Details seem scarce on this one, and satellite/aerial imagery isn't much help, so here's some more information. The stream crosses under the truck trail at the coordinates 42.757380°, -75.391663°. Following that stream will bring you to these three falls:

The first falls are small but interesting - the rock along the left side is vertical and looks almost man-made.

The second falls are a series of tiny cascades.

The third and largest is probably around 25 feet tall.
