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

Thanks everyone. Yeah, the hand could get cropped off without losing much. I had thought of cropping the top fence rail, but that would have left off too much.

Ben and I visited T Falls in January on a warm sunny day after a nasty cold snap. These are some of the photos Ben took.

That's really interesting how a little ice bridge formed on top of the flow of the upper falls.

Isn't that wild? In those shots, there's two pretty cool things. 1) That ice bridge and 2) look at the right flank of the falls - There's animal tracks (I assume deer) in the snow going up (or down?) the snow and ice covered rocks. Not that we could see much detail, but we couldn't see any evidence of the deer slipping or sliding or losing its footing. Deer -- Nature's true Falls Climbers. :)
