Awosting Falls Minnewaska State Park
New Paltz

Minnewaska State Park is a great place to escape for an hour or an entire day. Being only 15 minutes outside of New Paltz makes it very convenient, and the miles of carriageways and footpaths just beg to be explored. What you might not know is that just inside the main entrance, there is a path that leads down to Awosting Falls. When the falls are active, which varies depending on the time of year and how much rain has recently fallen, you are treated to a really cool experience, especially if you walk *behind* the falls, as I did for this photo.

Be careful when trying this, as the rocks are VERY slippery.

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.
