Sacred Sites Update--Zoar Valley, Hiker Dies in fall from Gorge

Zoar Valley listed on pages 382-391 in Sacred Sites in North Star Country: Places in Greater New York State (PA,OH,NJ,CT,MA,VT,ONT) That Changed the World is a beautiful place with  awesome views and has some wonderful places to meditate and experience Mother Earth's Fields of Consciousness as I note. However it is also dangerous and mysterious and prone to water surges, bridge washouts and more. Walking to close to the edge at places such as Point Peter can be dangerous because the ground underneath may no longer be there and you may be walking on a thin overhang.

It was just reported that a hiker fell 70 feet to their death on a gorge. Hiker dies in 70-foot fall into upstate NY gorge.

As the Buffalo news wrote last month, At beautiful and dangerous Zoar Valley, a cautionary tale for hikers

By all means visit this wonderful and majestic place. But please heed the warnings in my book and make sure to check the water levels before you go. The Cattaragus Creek can be 2feet high and a few hours later be 4 or 5 feet high and flowing fast.
