Pictures from Ricketts Glen State Park, PA

WHAT a beautiful hike this is! But this is the sign that greets you at the trailhead:







But we were prepared this year! I had a pair of well-seasoned hiking boots, my wonderful Black Diamond poles, and a lot of experience under my belt.

Mohawk Falls. This is called a "wedding cake" falls because of the different cascades. It's 37 feet tall.



Ganoga falls, 94 feet high!



Sheldon Reynolds falls, 36 feet. This is a "bridal veil" falls because it is just one drop.



Lots of wet, moss-covered slippery steps!



This is FL Ricketts falls. He named the falls after native American tribes AND family and friends:



Loved this photo! The family that hikes together, stays together! The mom had a baby in a front pack. (They were NOT on the falls trail, but on a flat trail through the woods.)



Today is our final day here and we'll be hosting our daughter, SIL and granddaughter for a hot dog roast over the campfire. Tomorrow we leave for Franconia Notch State Park in New Hampshire, for....more hiking! AND we'll have electric, water, and sewer at our campsite so we'll be living large.

Have a wonderful Sunday, Sparkfriends, and I'll be checking in with all of you next week.
