GREG BECKLER
GREG BECKLER
Greg Beckler- The hidden gems in our own backyard by Jessica Kane It was raining when I arrived at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves in Pottersville. Unfortunately, I neglected to bring my raincoat. I waited in the gift shop for Greg Beckler, who owns the business with his wife, Dee. Kids were running around looking at all the minerals and gems sparkling in cabinets and jars. I was reminded of the mineral collection I had when I was a child. How I begged my grandmother for a small chunk of fool’s gold, a geode - any shiny treasure. I amassed quite a collection that way. Greg arrived moments later. Lucky for me, he had purchased several giant yellow raincoats earlier that afternoon, one of which he loaned to me. We began the tour in Adventure Park, where one exhibit follows the next. There’s a geode room, where powerful electric diamond saws split these unattractive grey rocks to expose their dazzling gems inside. One can learn how crystals are made; see a display of local rocks and their usages; sift through bags of dirt for gems; mine for treasures; and just beyond the rock climbing wall and the frisbee golf course, the trail begins. “Watch your step,” Greg told me. “Some of these rocks are slippery.” A few steps later, I was surrounded by beautiful rocks, cascading waterfalls, and pathways like mazes through the lush green pines. “It’s just breathtaking,” I said. The property has been in Greg’s family over 200 years. One of Greg’s ancestors, Jacob Van Benthuysen, received it back in the late 1700’s as a land grant for fighting in the Revolutionary war. It was used first as a sawmill and remained so until Greg’s Aunt Lydia began guiding impromptu tours in her bare feet when she was just a child. By 1944 Lydia was well known as one of the first women cavers. She along with her mother transformed the property so the public could visit. They developed a trail system with steps and catwalks and then added picnic tables and a parking lot. In 1970, Lydia was going to sell the caves, but her youngest sister Jenny and her husband Ed Beckler, Greg’s parents, bought it and took over the operation. Greg was 10 when he moved into the house at Stone Bridge, a house that sat right on top of the caves. Greg spent much of his childhood exploring. “My favorite,” he said. “Was to jump rocks two miles upstream with my dog.” As an adult, Greg attended Ohio State with his wife, Dee. After receiving a PhD in molecular cellular developmental biology, Greg went to work at what’s now one of the largest private biotech companies in the country. He knew eventually he wanted to move back to The Caves, but in 2001, his parents needed some extra help, so he decided to move back earlier than planned. Since then, he and Dee have been running Natural Stone Bridge and Caves, living with their three children, Jesika, Jennifer, and Bryan in the house where Greg grew up. As we headed down the steps toward Trout Brook and Mediation Isle, white waters gushed past enormous rocks. “Some of these giant rocks come from Canada,” Greg said. “Thousands of years ago when the glaciers melted, the water carried them down.” Greg said some rocks still move from time to time, and when they do, the landscape is slightly altered. A rock breaks off and there’s a new place for things to flow. The marble caves were also formed at the end of the last Ice Age as retreating glaciers melted. “There it is,” he said. “That’s the Stone Bridge.” It was impressive. According to the National Speleological Society, Stone Bridge appears to be the largest natural marble cave entrance in the Eastern United States, measuring up to 180' wide and 62' high. “That used to be apart of the bridge,” Greg said, referring to an enormous stone structure below. “But in 1955, it cracked off.” “That must have felt like an earthquake,” I said. “My uncle was living here at the time and oddly enough, he didn’t feel it or hear it. “I guess nature does its own redecorating,” I said. “All the time,” he said. “Nature’s amazing.” ‘Noisy Cave’ got its name for good reason. The rush of water is deafening. Inside, it’s dark and damp, but the lamps that Greg installed illuminate the crevices in the stone. Once outside the cave, we crossed a bridge to another path. Behind us, a steep hill was covered in Hemlocks, some braced with cables to keep them from tumbling. “Many of those Hemlocks are well over 300 years old,” Greg said. “We do our best to preserve them.” On a nearby bench, we watched as the rain fell into the brook, and glistened over the red and brown rocks. “There’s such a nice feeling here,” I said. “People often tell me they feel a connection with the earth, nature, the universe, whatever you want to call it.” “How would you describe it,” I asked. “Home,” he said, smiling. Over the rushing water, we walked up thick cedar stairs, etched with chain saw hatch marks that prevent slipping. Throughout the park, there are many stairways and bridges built on steep slopes, some with chains to pre

In the 1970’s, this was probably the most famous restaurant in San Francisco's Chinatown. They have a ton of signed photos of old celebrities, athletes, politicians and even a president on their walls. It was unique for a few reasons. One was that to enter, you had to walk through the kitchen which was so narrow that the line cooks and servers would have to press themselves against the stoves and woks to let you get by. Then to reach the second floor dining room, you had to climb a steel stairway which was so small that two people traveling in opposite directions would never be able to pass one another. The tables were small and the seats were wooden benches. Back in the 70's the owner would openly solicit tips from the queue of people waiting for a table. If you tipped him well, you went to the front of the line. If you objected, he chased you away and told you to go to another restaurant. Once you were inside he often would tell you what to order as well. He was funny but could also be rude. I had the opportunity to eat here a couple of years ago and found out that the owner had passed away, and the food which was fantastic was now just mediocre. When I took this photo, I didn’t notice the little girl looking down at me from the dining room. Sam Wo’s, now a nice place to visit but I wouldn’t want to eat there.
