The Hudson River at Glens Falls

Wifey and I went down to the Cooper’s Cave overlook, under the bridge that goes over the Hudson River between Glens Falls and South Glens Falls, to check-out the water coming over the dam. There still is a very deep snow pac up in the Adirondack mountains left from this winter, and it’s melt and the runoff from recent rains, has the Hudson running at historic levels. I took some video of the high water that I’ll post for you to check-out. The power and force of the water coming over the dam at Glens Falls is amazing to experience. Unfortunately, I’m finding I can’t upload onto my blog any of the video I took because of file size? I was able to upload some of the video on my facebook page, so you can go there to check it out. It’s worth the trip over to see and hear the Hudson coming over the dam and over the rock that is known as Cooper’s Cave, from the James Fenimore Cooper story, “The Last of the Mohicans”. Since I couldn’t get a video to upload, I took a few pics of the dam on Sunday to post. While it’s not as dramatic as Saturday morning, you’ll get the idea.
