    Here are a few more shots from my adventure. This is another view of Buttermilk falls from above:

    Here is the top of the slope. This is the area where John and I must have taken separate paths. I wasn't able to imagine the dogs pulling John up to the top via this route

    John,

    Missed that part of your post on first reading. I'm not really sure, but I'll see what I can come up with.

    What time was icracer's shot taken?

    Cool! No chainsaw required! Thanks for the visual updates, Dale.

    Sounds like Lee L and I are going to do the Sunday morning thing - very early - before the lights starts pouring down through the trees. We'll be sure to get a time together for anyone interested in joining us. It's easy to get to the parking lot so if someone wants to come before 10 o'clock coffee but not as early as us we should be able to meet up easily enough. I'll bring my cell just in case.

    Here is another place of interest. The old paper mill. Just down the road from the falls.

    That shot was taken in the afternoon. Probably between 2 and 4 pm last week.

    It is actually a little farther north on River Road, then off Vaughn. I was thinking it was near the Boston Mills ski slope, but it is near Brandywine (though now renamed to Boston Mills).

    Anyway here is the view. Looks like the complete building was still standing when this shot was taken. Now just the old machine remains.

    Here's what I could come up with.

    This is with The Photographer's Ephemeris, an Adobe Air application. It uses google maps with astronomical algorithms to draw sunset/rise and moonset/rise lines and calculate times.

    Location of Buttermilk Falls is taken from the Great Lakes region waterfall web page referenced by John. 41.2628N 81.5673W You can just cut and paste that location into google maps to find it.

    Thick yellow = direction to sunrise 6:06 on Sunday May 16 at Buttermilk Falls
    Thick orange = direction to sunset 20:38 on Sunday May 16 at Buttermilk Falls
    Light blue = direction to moonrise
    Dark blue = direction to moonset
    Thin yellow = direction to sun at 8:01 am on Sunday May 16 at Buttermilk Falls
    at 8:01 am the sun will be at azimuth 81.3 degrees and 19.6 degrees above a level horizon

    Since I haven't been to the falls, I can't tell exactly which direction it faces although downstream is generally east, and you can't tell from the map how the tree cover is for the falls.

    So even with reasonably good info and computer simulation, we'll just have to go there and find out for ourselves. How quaint ... and analog.
