The Mighty Esopus!

IMG_9709It’s been a very rainy week in early June. We had 4 inches of rain in 3 days. This is the Esopus, the waterfall above is usually not more than a trickle of water. We were so amazed at the force of the water that we pulled over to photograph it. There’s a short video of it here.
