This past Saturday we hiked the Trenton Falls Gorge with our friends the Helmers. We had done the trip in October of 2004 when they first opened the trail and we were looking forward to seeing some of the falls with a higher volume of spring run off. While it was a pleasant walk and we bumped into several friends, the falls were a little disappointing as there was less water then our trip in the fall of 2004. Compare these two pictures from April of 2006 and October of 2004.
While it was a dry fall in 2004 this spring has been very dry. I understand that no water is coming over the Hinckley Dam.
