January Thaw...

 We have been in a deep freeze and surrounded by thick layers of ice and snow since the Holidays. So this weekend when the temperatures got up to 57 degrees and we had lots of rain instead of snow, i grabbed my point and shoot camera and my umbrella, and headed down to the Cohoes Falls. 
 The city closes the Falls Park for the Winter months but there is another overlook near the old mill houses near the power plant, so i took these pictures from that point.
 At first there was so much fog and mist surrounding the falls it was hard to see the water flow, but i stood there for a while enjoying the energy there and eventually the fog and mist lifted a bit.

I included this little picture because i love that little lookout house on the edge of the wall there. Imagine what it would be like to be in there when the falls are like this!
