Catskill Trip

February 15, 2006

Here are a few pictures taken during a late winter trip to some of our favorite scenes in the Catskills. We particularly enjoy the colorful ice on the rocky outcrops along Frost Valley road. And we always try to visit the roadside waterfall on the side of Peekamoose mountain and stop by the Ashokan reservoir.

Suggestions are welcome - just send me an email.

"Colorful Ice"

Colorful Ice

This is a great winter site. This is a rocky cliff along Frost Valley road, where each year the water comes out of the rock and freezes in a wonderful array of shapes and colors. This year, the colors were more subtle than in the past, but still great.

Buttermilk Falls (2/06)

Buttermilk Falls during a mild winter. Some winters the falls are completely encased in ice, but this year they are merely fringed by the ice. Annie took this great view.
