with Dillon Senn

Blizzy, Dillon, and Me at Cavern Falls

Dillon and I both had off for Good Friday so we decided to get together for one of my all time favorite hikes and Waterfalls!  He had been as far as Milton Bradley Falls, but today I would "show him the ropes" and take him all the way upstream to the spectacular Cavern Falls!

Also Joining us would be Blizzy (Dillon's faithful canine companion)

 Blizzy on the trail!

Since I have written about this hike several times in the past, I am just going to post some photos from this trip!
