The Waters of Life - Easton Mountain Center,NY – Sweetwater Danby Mountain Creek, VT
Arriving in the rain from Bradley Airport by Hartford CT and Springfield MA I drove with my friend Ron Christianson to Easton Mountain Retreat Center where we staffed a Gateway Weekend for Mankind Project. Here is the pond in front of the lodge where we did the NWTA Weekend.
Here is Sweetwater Creek by the Partner Earth Education Center, Danby VT, envisioned by Pamela Montgomery with the buildings maintained by Mark Carlin since 2004. See http://www.partnereartheducationcenter.com/. Mark and Pam welcomed Ron, Ivey Hardy and me to their home on Marble Mountain above Danby with fresh vegies and chili on Sunday night.
After a hearty home made breakfast of farm fresh eggs, blue berry pancakes with coffee and orange juice with Pam and Mark,
Mark let us work off the calories with a walk-climb up Marble Mountain to the middle falls here. Here are Mark and Ron at the middle falls of Sweetwater Creek.
Another view of the creek with its clear waters in the autumn.
