Slacking, Slacking, Slacking!!!
It has been a pretty tough 2018, a lot of ups and downs on a personal level, which as I see now has greatly impacted my up keep and work going on #Bobbieswaterfalls website.

So to all my readers and followers, my apologies!

Waterfalls, Whats areas and types interest You! 6-5-2017

Waterfalls, Whats areas and types interest You!

I am curious! We all view our destinations based on our personal preferences. For all you “Waterfall” folks, what areas or types of waterfall locations do you choose to see.

Do you like long hikes to get to a waterfall?
Do you prefer a roadside stop here and there along a route to your end destination?

Old City Road, falls on Herkimer County, New York

Do you prefer hikes less then 1 mile to see a waterfall?

Would you only visit tourist areas of attractions like Niagara Falls, Watkins Glen State Park or Letchworth State Park?

Would you camp in the woods over night, just to see waterfalls?

If you were to choose a waterfall destination where would it be?

I would like to see your comments!

My point of view
I love waterfalls, of course. I do not like lots of people, therefore I would choose lesser known places to travel to. As well as the adventure it brings. Niagara Falls is a totally awesome place, yet I found every time I went it was too overwhelming with all the people. I love following the “Whitewater rafting/kayaking” folks. I love watching as they plummet over the falls! Sure there on plenty of on lookers, cheering on their friend or family or spouses. Everyone is there with the same common interest. That and I get to learn and find more waterfalls in which is classified as rapids! I have had more adventures and stories to tell for years later! Cool, I think so.

A dear friend of mine from West Virginia, came up to visit us, and had wish to see Niagara Falls. She had never been here before. On our return to here to Niagara Falls, we covered areas that we did not get to in July. We included a couple of activities that would give views of all the Falls. Had a great time. The grandchildren greatly enjoyed the Maid of the Mist boat ride, as well as the Cave of the Winds.
