The following list is the first set of locations listed in the book “Waterfalls of New York State” by Scott A. Ensminger of (Western New York Waterfall Survey), David J. Schryver of (Northern New York Waterfalls) and Edwards M. Smathers of (Dig the Falls)

Be sure to check them out! I myself have personally contributed a lot of waterfall location information to both Mr. Edward Smathers and Mr. David Schryver. I am currently a team member with “Dig the Falls”. The simple rules of this challenge, is to visit 100 waterfall locations in the book. One location may have several waterfalls, but counts as one location. Click on the links (I have visited) in the boxes below, which will take you to additional information pages. (NOTE: format is different then the first 4 parts of challenge already posted prior. I thought I had posted all of these, but, ummm well, I did not)
