After a very hot July in the Northeast- It has finally cooled. There has been a lot of rain in the Catskill Region this past week bringing many of the creeks and waterfalls alive.

Bastion Falls is located on Route 23A and is at the start of the trail-head for Kaaterskill Falls. This week Bastion Falls brought many cars to a stop on Route 23A because of the recent wet weather as they drove on the hairpin curve (View image) that passes this roadside waterfall.

The top image of Bastion Falls was taken from Route23A on a bridge that crosses Spruce Creek.

The next image was taken near the trail register for the Kaaterskill Falls Trail.
