Playing Hooky

It was way too hot to work on motorcycles during our latest heat wave, so Dave joined me up in the Adirondacks. The lakes were too crowded to go boating though, since everyone wanted to get wet and cool off. In a quandary to find a place to chill out, we headed to the LaChute falls. The LaChute River flows between Lake George and Lake Champlain, and there are several sets of waterfalls, since Lake Champlain is over 200 feet lower than Lake George.
We certainly wouldn't consider doing this in the spring, but now the water is tamer, although still powerful, so we had to be careful not to be swept further down the falls.

Dave, as usual, was brave enough to explore and take in the whole falls experience.
He even found a small turtle hiding in a rock crevice. What a trip it must have had getting there!
I, on the other hand, preferred the more sedate natural jacuzzi at the base.
Still up close and personal, right underneath.
The constantly flowing water sure was mesmerizing and a cool way to spend the afternoon away from the crowds.
