Akron Falls

From http://gowaterfalling.com/waterfalls/akron.shtml

Akron falls is located in Akron New York.  It is the centerpiece and namesake of Akron Falls Park.  This is a large park with ball fields, picnic areas and shelters, and it is quite popular in summer months.  The park is easy to find.  It is just north of the Route 5 / Route 93 junction.

Akron Falls is a complicated waterfall whose appearance depends greatly on the amount of water.  There are three distinct parts to the falls.  On the right side, facing the falls, the creek plummets 40 or so feet straight down.  In the middle section, the creek comes out of the rocks about 20 feet up.  The left most part of the falls is a rocky cascade.  In lower water, the 40 foot drop dries up.

There is a trail into the gorge that leads to a viewing area.  To get a good look at the falls you need to walk up the creek.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
