A Walk to Bear Pond

I went up to the Adirondacks to visit family this past month. During it, I was told of a nearby waterfall to my parents cabin. So we took a five mile walk down the road (round trip) to Bear Pond and the attached waterfall. There are many Bear Ponds around the country, but this is the one in Athol, NY. It was a bright sunny day and we all got some nice exercise in. The road splits off and becomes a dirt road, so some interesting terrain with very few houses nearby.

I kind of love this staircase leading up to the house.
