Shelving Rock Falls is a short hike (1 mile roundtrip) on the eastern side of Lake George. We went with our friends the Sattlers, whose paterfamilias teaches in the art department.
Here we are bush-whacking along the creek. In spring, this meadow is all underwater.
Here are the kids looking for trout, minnows, crayfish, leeches, newts, frogs, hellagrammites, and anything else squirmy in the creek.
The falls and ultimate picnic spot.
Climbing up the waterfall. Will, Drew and Emily have already made it. I am helping my daughter Tess, age 6, in the pink.
