Michael was off today...Happy Columbus Day! So we went to the westside boundary of the Adirondacks to go hiking in the Independence River State Forest! We took the kids so we did a six mile hike to Gleasman Falls! It was beautiful out...and VERY cold! I think it was 35 degrees out. The trees were beautiful and the trail was painted in golds, reds, and orange colors. When we reached the Falls, we ate a picnic and listening to the music of the waterfalls and the babbling brook behind us!
Registering at the trailhead...in case we went missing;)
Haleigh taking a break at Burnt Creek.
Beaver hut through the trees :)
We were looking for the beaver who ate this for lunch.
Anybody missing a pair of shorts????
Time for a break at another footbridge...the kids liked to stop and see how deep the water was with their hiking sticks.
Oh look! The perfect bench to take a break!
Can you see the leaves under the water?
Finally, we can relax at the Falls!
Gleasman Falls was a bit concealed, but as far as we could see the Falls were continuous!
My favorite hiking partner! :) This is me when I'm hiking...no makeup, no contacts..blah...;)
