Kaaterskill FallsWes and I took the short hike to the new Kaatersville Falls viewing platform yesterday.  It was 7 degrees colder in Haines Falls than it was here at home, making me very glad I had brought gloves.Kaaterskill FallsIn the middle left of this picture, you can see a man in a blue jacket hiking. He was way, way below  the platform.from Kaaterskill Falls viewing platformThe falls are to the left as you look off the platform and this view is to the right.  It’s not much to look at now, especially on a cloudy day, but imagine it in the other three seasons.  Actually, it would be pretty with some snow in it too. viewing platformJust as we were leaving, a whole group of people came, so viewing space was at a premium.uphillIt’s an all down hill walk to the platform, so going back is a bit more strenuous. bluestone drainThere are drains built into the path in several places, nicely made of bluestone. comfortable benchSome of the “benches” along the path areuncomfortable bencha bit more comfortable than others.
Seriously, we can’t wait to go back.  It’s a lovely walk and the change of seasons viewed from the platform will be spectacular!.
