On a rainy day, Carol and I drove down to Peekamoose Road for some geocaching and waterfall viewing. This road is a narrow, winding route through a gorge carved out by Rondout Creek on the southern edge of the Catskills. There are a number of waterfalls spilling down the steep walls on either side of the road.
The best-known cascade is Buttermilk Falls, accessed by a short path.
A closer look at the main part of the falls.
This trailhead is the starting point for the climb to 3843-ft. Peekamoose Mountain.
One of the trickier caches was located 100 yards or so up picturesque Bear Hole Brook.
This wild stream drains a deep valley enclosed by Peekamoose, Table and Van Wyck Mountains.
Carol logs a neat cache hidden in a natural rock fort.
An extremely popular swimming spot known as Blue Hole.
