Sylvia went to the Kaaterskill Falls. The falls' name, like that of the features around it, probably came from a later corruption of "Catskill" by English-speaking colonists who had supplanted the Dutch by the early 18th century. Cat could mean Bobcat or Mountain Lion, while "kill" means stream in Dutch, the original language of the first European colonists in the 17th century.
Sylvia tremendously enjoyed her visit to the falls, even if she ended up wetter and wetter.
She even rescued someone's sandal.
