  1. It looks cool and inviting. There’s a river here in Texas called the Rio Frio that draws people like a magnet each summer for just that reason. It’s a clean, slow-running stream that’s good for tubing. Now, I’m going to have to go off and see if our native honeysuckle produces berries. I don’t remember seeing any, but that could be due to my inattention, or hungry birds, or any number of things.

    These are fine photos. Every time I see a new side of your NY territory, it seems more appealing.

    • Rio Frio sounds great. Buttermilk is a nice creek to wade in, but too shallow, and rocky for tubing. The next stream over has a 6-ft concrete dam, and you can slide down the little sluiceway, although I did that so many times one afternoon, I ripped the seat out of my shorts, and had to walk back to the car by a circuitous route to avoid people! Downstream at the bottom, at the base of Buttermilk Falls, you can swim, it’s a state park.
      I didn’t realize until this weekend, that there so many types of honeysuckle, and some invasive, pretty sure the one in the picture is a local.

  2. Looks like a really charming place, Robert. Thanks for sharing.
    Have a wonderful week,
    @shoreacres: The Rio Frio is still on our bucket list of great destinations in Texas.

    • Thanks, Pit, you too. They’re forecasting MORE rain in a couple of days, so if nothing else, I can keep taking pictures of water this summer!! 🙂 #Time to Build That Ark, Where Do I Buy Gopherwood??
