We went rock hounding to find some rocks for my jewelry; I have been using natural stones in it as much as possible recently. I got some nice diopside, blue calcite and quartz, some with diopside. We first went to Cascade Lake, up past Keene, NY.
Then we went to the Roaring Brook hiking area before you get to Keene Valley. We went late, around 4PM, so we were able to get parking, which was packed earlier in the day. We did the very short hike into the bottom of the falls, and it was really remarkable.
