Winter hiking is an interesting hobby that I’ve been trying. After getting some polyester clothing, I have been able to tackle some great things. Recently, a friend and I embarked on some winter climbing to see a waterfall that had frozen over. We saw some really cool stuff.
The hike starts with a small hike to a wooded path. If you follow the river, you find a waterfall. In the summer, it’s gorgeous and fun to check out. Many residents of the New Paltz/Kerhonkston area like to visit it and hang out. In the winter, you get a lot of photographers and ice climbing enthusiasts. I’ll let the photos do the talking:
One of the cool features of Shaft 2A is that you can scramble to the top of the waterfall and see the river that feeds the waterfall. There’s a trail you can take, but making your own is a lot more fun.
