Whitewater Gorge

I viewed many great sites at Stone Valley but this was my favorite. I snowshoed up a rock cliff that looked down into this rapid gorge, which was a wonderful site. The image really gives you a sense of how much snow the North Country receives, and the opening where you can see the water is just breathtaking. It was a lot of fun hiking up to this point because you had to walk across the ice over the river to get to it. This is just one of Stone Valleys many gorges, rapids and chutes.
