Downstream from Alice Falls

We found Alice Falls in my new NY waterfall book (Waterfalls of New York State, by Scott Ensminger, David Schryver and Edward Smathers -- plug, plug). But it turns out the recommended entrance to the falls was locked behind a "hydro" plant gate. We drove downstream a bit and came to this lovely site. Looking at the photo in the book I do not think that this is actually Alice Falls but a dam downstream from the falls that was built over another escarpment. We'll get Alice Falls on our next trip to the area.

 

I guess I shouldn't complain because it seems that much of NY is very dry.
