When I met my husband many years ago, he was anxious to show me his hometown, Keeseville, NY, an area he was fond of calling “God’s Country”. In many ways, that’s a very accurate description of this area. The scenery is magnificent! A good example of that is Ausable Chasm.
Ausable Chasm was formed nearly 500 million years ago. Mind blowing, isn’t it?
It was during the Cambrian age when the rushing water of the Ausable River began cutting its way into the “Potsdam” sandstone stata.
The Chasm is about 2 miles long and is called, by some, the Grand Canyon of the East.
We did not explore the entire Chasm; these photos were taken from the bridge that runs right over it, just a mile or two out of town.
The Chasm, river, waterfalls and rock formations are the oldest natural attraction in the United States. Since 1870, over 10 million people have come to explore Ausable Chasm.
If you’re ever in this area, it’s a definite “must-see”. Pictures just can’t capture the beauty you see when you visit this place. We make a return visit each time we’re in the area. It’s just that beautiful
That’s it for today…thanks for stopping by!
