One thing I don't get much of in the Prairie State is waterfalls. So our family determined to take the opportunity to search a few out in the Adirondacks.
Tooley Pond Road is about an hour from Lake Bonaparte, just west of Cranberry Lake. Once we figured out that the trailhead to each waterfall was clearly marked, we took off through the forests in search of some roaring water.
The first waterfalls--Rainbow Falls--were the prettiest to photograph.
A quick snapshot.
With tripod set up and smallest aperture possible.
Same set-up a little farther downriver. I like this photo best.
OK, a shot from Danny that proves I hiked over rocks in a skirt. :)
I'm showing you the next photo because it is funny.
It may not look funny. Several of my "family photos" were taken with the help of a plug-in remote, a ten-second timer, and a 17-year-old who can clamber over boulders and make it back into his spot just in time. However, when the sun is shining in your eyes, everyone is counting down, Fernando asks, "Is it ready?" and Thomas sneezes moments before the shutter clicks, it is funny. I don't think I'll choose this one for our Christmas photo.
