Happy Birthday to Me

For my 39th birthday we undertook the first hike of our new life.   This hike, a fairly simple one, is to Kaaterskill Falls, a two drop waterfall in the eastern Catskill mountains of New York.

The hardest part is getting to the trail head, which requires braving oncoming traffic, along winding roads with no shoulder . . .

And navigating the wreckage from over-night storms . . .

But after a short hike, we arrived at the deserted waterfall (one of the benefits of being able to get here during the middle of a work day) and set up a nice picnic on a flat rock overlooking the falls and the pool of water beneath.  Happy Birthday to me!
