Falls and Creeks
|Terry F Conrow|
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. From my viewpoint nothing is more majestic than the creations of Nature. Whether a small cascade found along a hidden creek, or a well known falls like Chitenango Falls and Montour Falls, my connection is the same.

New York is home to many beautiful falls, most of which I actually had no idea existed. Even these ones in my own hometown I had no knowledge of until I began this blog series.
My attraction to water has been with me my entire life. What is odd is that when I lived along the gulf coast in both Florida and Louisiana, my reaction was not the same. I found going to the shore relaxing but not refreshing. The music of the waves, watching the tide playing tag with the shore, was pleasant. However I my soul did not seem to revitalize, my worries did not fade. I am not certain if it was the water itself smelling like fish and leaving my skin feeling sticky and dirty or just the fact that the water was the temperature of a bath. It just was not the same.
As a final show of beauty, I am sharing other falls from my home state. I hope they refresh you as they do me.
