ALBION – I’ve been wanting to get a picture of the little waterfalls by Community Action in Albion for many months. This one is hard to get at. But with a fresh dusting of snow on the ground, I decided I needed to make my move today.

At about 5:45 p.m., I descended the Sandy Creek embankment and laid eyes on the creek as it rushes through a culvert under East State Street.

It’s another nice spot in Orleans County. I don’t know the history behind the stone building. It looks like it’s from the mid-1800s. Maybe it was a mill long ago.

Sandy Creek passes under the Erie Canal not far from here and heads north.
