West Branch Ausable River!

This is one of our favorite places to stop every year when we go to the Adirondacks. We found this spot by accident the first year we were in the Adirondacks. It is so calming just sitting on the big rocks and watching the water flow.

We had a visitor this time when we stopped. We aren't sure what kind of bird it is, but when it starts to fly it sure has a large wing span.

Chris was trying something new on the camera. It turned out pretty cool in this picture. I love how it looks like the water is running.

There are many fishermen that stop at this spot. It is really neat to watch them in there waders up to their waist fly fishing.

You should hear what it sounds like. It is amazing the sound that this river makes. This is still day number one of our vacation, so there are still a lot more photos for us to show you.

I am jealous beyond belief that you could get that close to a great blue heron - I love them - I've had some neat experiences and views of them - but never have gotten that close with a camera.

That is a really cool picture of the water looking like it is flowing! I love it! I also thought that was a Heron, and they are really cool birds, I would love to see one in person!!
