|On unnamed stream flowing into
the West River tributary of Canandaigua Lake in Yates County.
|We entered this gully at the
top planning to hike the full length of it. but we were stymied by
Mrs. Henrie Falls and a narrow, 60 foot deep gully with vertical walls.
This is a very young gully and the sides are very steep and unstable.
There were lots of signs of recent rock collapse. Being small and
steep, the gully was free of debris and the walking was fairly easy
as far as we went. We'll plan to return next spring (doesn't look
like much water here in the summer) and bring our rope.
|We found our way into this
small gully on a hike looking for School 7 falls. We had left our
maps home on the kitchen counter and were kind of feeling our way.
This one is pretty unassuming on the topo map and we probably wouldn't
have targeted it for a hike. But, we were very pleasantly surprised.
It is a beautiful steep gully with a lovely long cascade and a dandy
waterfall of 21 feet.
