Adirondack Waterfall Exploration

I always enjoy time spent exploring the Adirondack region.

Usually when I visit the Adirondacks that means I am going to spend a lot of time out hiking. Hopefully climbing some mountains. Circling trails around lakes. Or visiting other beautiful scenery on foot.

This year out adventures were a little bit different. We went camping as usual. Camping in the Adirondacks is hard to beat.

But instead of our campsite being home base for a lot of hiking adventures it went down a little differently on this trip. We really wanted to take our dog Brynn with us. But these days Brynn has a lot of mobility issues. Despite her limitations she loves to get out and explore as much as she can.

Brynn can’t walk long distances but she loves to go wherever she can with us. And she loves car rides. So this trip meant a lot of driving around to explore.

One beautiful type of natural feature that can be regularly found without to much effort is waterfalls. Waterfalls occur everywhere. In all types of places. Deep in gorges. Running down valleys. Pouring down mountainsides. Sloshing over rocks along streams deep in the forests.

But waterfalls also occur in a lot of easy to access places. Along roadsides. In streams and rivers where bridges cross over. And along streams only a short walk from the road.

So this year I bought a book detailing waterfalls in the Adirondack region. I bookmarked the ones that were easily accessed. We spent time driving around and finding a bunch of waterfalls. These photos are some of the beautiful sights we found right near the road or just a short walk away.
