It was a brisk morning, 18 degrees with a consistent breeze out of the south.  My dad and I set out for a snowshoe up Mt. Arab for the day, a peak with a 2,545-foot elevation in Piercefield, NY.  Arriving on the outskirts of Tupper Lake at 10:30am in the morning, we were the first to park at the trailhead. After strapping on the snowshoes and signing into the trail register, we were on our way up the easy/moderate slope to the summit. A one-mile long ascent, Mt. Arab has grown to be a popular hike offering spectacular views from the top. At the open summit is a small cabin and fire tower. Once used for by observers to search for fires in the surrounding forest, the 35-foot steel fire tower is now maintained by the Friends of Mt. Arab. This enables the public to enjoy the history of the tower and the great 360 degree views from the top of it. It's definitely worth the short trip.

My favorite waterfall photos are often taken while standing right in the water, and this one was no exception. This helps to get the viewer closer to the action and make them feel as if they’re about to get wet themselves.
