Heather took all the pictures from the bridge. My fear of heights was in extreme mode at Paterson. Maybe it was the wet thin bridge with no solid foundation on both sides as it crossed over to the other side. I'm sure it was a lot me, but at least I have a compadre who isn't afraid to go out on a bridge to get the good pictures.

Paterson claims 2nd biggest waterfall in the east after Niagara. However, it's height is less than other things we've seen. Apparently, you have to measure by height, width, and flow. Then you get 2nd biggest. I'll agree with that measure, but I still would prefer a taller drop - as long as it's not a slow horsetail fall.

From the back end - where all of the drops and the width of the fall truly come into view.
