What's up buddy? Long time no see.
Upper Whitewater Falls
Nice Water Fall shots..
Thanks, Kirk was coaching me.
Ha Ha! Here's my shots.
Looks like a great weekend, it was 3 degrees where I was
Presque Isle for the weekend?
Here's your second one after fooling with it in Picassa a little bit. Neither of our cameras have big enough sensors to overcome the big shadow in the lower left.
nah, northern Vermont. Met Hawk in Hartford last thursday for a cheeseburger then went up for a couple days.
I'm'a hijack for a second 'cause I know George checks in here- hey Old Lion - here's the Space Research compound from the corner of North Jay and Journey's End roads:
You are out of map:
North Troy - about 2/3 of that mountain is on the Canookian side of the line:
sorry the pics were from my iPhone, forgot my camera
Ok Ricky-Bobby you can have your bandwidth back...
Ahh... Much better. I just noticed the pterodactyl shadow in the top center. :huh
Lucky we didn't get picked off.
Somewhere on the shores of Keeowee.
Table Rock off in the distance.
Way before.......before.....where's the after?
It was closed last summer, too (or maybe the summer of 2011?). It's been closed, on and off, for about thirty years.
I think it's just closed.
My home internet connection stinks, so feel free to pirate into my smuggy, I'd share it if bandwidth allowed.
And the record shows that it was never actually a world-shaking site, or world-shaking technology... but it did sort of give the world a little bit of a quiver, for a minute or two there
I have some Canadian enduro friends who used to ride there.
They called it the border trail because you went in and out of Canada several times.
This was in the late 90's,after Bulls assassination.
One more interesting bit- according to several people who worked there, they actually were able to fire a 'projectile' (actually a 2-stage piece) into a stable orbit from the North Troy/Highwater site, where (I think) they only had permission to test fire into the mountainside. The whole thing was closed down when I moved to the area, but kids that grew up there said the test-fires would knock things off the shelves and pictures off the walls.
It's weird- Bull was building a better buggy whip, even after the world had moved on to supercharged v-12s.
Meh, we already knew that about her, she gets all the hot ones.
Hey folks, thought I had ed this one long ago.
Oh-well in now.
Well you do.
<S>Not that there's anything wrong with that. Or that I'm jealous or anything.
