Great Falls of the Passaic River

We had an early morning outing to Paterson today to visit the Great Falls of the Passaic River.  We’ve visited many times in the past but we had to make a special trip knowing it would be quite a sight since we had so much rain last week.

Obviously, we were not the only people who decided to come check out the Falls today.  Lots of visitors were walking around taking pictures and video. There were even people on helicopter tours above us.  There was also a huge police presence directing traffic around the area.

Catch the Mist

The Falls are a powerful sight.  The roar of the water is very loud.  And walking the steps to the viewing point puts you right in front of the falls.  If you visit now, prepare to get wet—especially if you go on the footbridge.  But the view is worth it.

Check out the rest of our visit in the gallery below and consider heading over to the Falls this week to see Mother Nature roaring her way through Paterson.
