In the lake in front of Oneonta Falls.
Any one for a swim ? This looks cool. - Kydlt
Kydlt and Kate decided kinda late to go in to Portland for some BBQ with the children, partly because of a hash on the way. It was one of those that looked maybe easy, maybe hard from the Bing aerial photo. I put together a swimming-to-the-hash kit, as this possibility was something that excited me about this location. However, it was not to be. First, there was July 4th parking. Then there was trying to deal with Kate's camera failure. Wading Oneonta Creek was easy and pleasant. But as the creek turned under the RR bridge it became clogged with downed logs and brambles. Going down the bank was no better. So running short on time to get to the Portland party we waded back up the creak and headed on our way with smiles for having tried.
