Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

The Cascades are ROARING!

The Cascades are in full flood, roaring down over the top of the hill! If you haven't seen them really going, it's worth the trip!
At 8:30 am, it is 55 degrees and steady. We have 95% humidity, though it is not currently raining.
The barometer is at 28.85 inches of mercury and falling, so more rain is coming.

A light dusting

Just enough to coat the trails this morning. Here's the partly frozen Cascades, with water running through the snow-covered ice.

View from before the bridge:

It looks as if we've already had one four-legged hiker and a two-legged hiker equipped with Yak Traks out there this morning. Fine hiking, though very, very cold these next few days!
