The photo above showing Tinker Falls in upstate New York was taken on May 1, 2005. Tinker Falls is a "hanging falls," created when glaciers carved and then deepened a through valley -- Labrador Hollow. A scenic trail leads to this beautiful view of the water cascading some twenty feet (6 m) off of a limestone edge. The base of the falls is littered with massive limestone slabs and tree debris, a result of flooding, especially springtime snowmelt floods.
