Favorite waterfall by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 12:50:34 PM EST
Where Difficult Run empties into the Potomac, just upstream of the Beltway in VA. The water falls about 10feet into a small pool which drains into the river.

Earth First!
(We can strip mine the rest later.)

I never saw it, but I'll add it by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 12:57:29 PM EST
s well as Potter's Falls, the small waterfall in the Ithaca water supply gorge one can slide down into the water while skinny dipping, and hoping the Rangers don't cite you.

DOT3 by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #3 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 01:00:12 PM EST
first thought this was a dupe diary, then realized I saw some of the pics on FB.

And I came in for DOTT3 -- the next Lucas Arts installment of a great franchise.. Alas, you meant brake fluid. damn.

Yeah, now that I know FB resizes pics on the fly by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 01:01:53 PM EST
I no longer have to tediously edit the raw pics into something Husi-suitable, I'll let FB do it.

Hm. by ana (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 01:46:19 PM EST
There's a little cascade on the creek about a mile from where I'm staying, half of that a trail that parallels the creek. I should take the camera up there. It's amusing that the rocks in the creek look like slate (metamorphic sandstone) but with granite boulders nearby (igneous). The geology is trying to tell me something, but I'm not listening in the right way.

I'm pretty bad on geology by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 02:00:36 PM EST
but one of the plaques mentioned the siltstone and slate in the gorges, and you can see the layer cakes easily in the gorges, and a few of my pics.

You could blame the glaciers, they dragged a lot of rocks around.

I haven't heard of either.

A topless woman in the USA? by dmg (2.00 / 0) #11 Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 08:19:58 PM EST
 How could you have made that statistically improbable assumption? Hope over experience? I've only ever seen one - and that was in Hawaii, which barely counts as the USA...

Note on Bujhold by wumpus (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri Aug 27, 2010 at 08:38:44 AM EST
She was a big favorite on rec.sf-lovers when I used to read it. Highly recommended (especially any Miles work).

Warning: Her last 3-4 books centered on a romantic heroine and her magical lover who sees her as "sparkly" (and calls her "spark" no less). No other issues with it, but you have been warned.

I'm not sure about the sparkly bits though.

Really pretty. by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #15 Mon Aug 30, 2010 at 11:42:27 AM EST
Looks like a really great time.

When I was younger I didn't really see the point of vacations. These days.... I've changed my mind.

It was a good time, thanks by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #16 Mon Aug 30, 2010 at 11:47:01 AM EST
and it was our cheapest vacation yet, spending $200 instead of $1000 for a rental will do that.

I think next year will be a cheap year. by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #17 Mon Aug 30, 2010 at 11:54:59 AM EST
We haven't been to Cherry Springs/Coudersport in a couple of years; can't really use a cabin since you need your tent to call "dibs" on the spot you'll be using your telescope, but the weather is usually quite mild. There's also a big CCC-built park in the area that calls itself the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania". They have a bicycle trail that runs through it....
