Ricketts Glen State Park with Maria Sapio

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

Ricketts Glen State Park is located in Benton, PA approximately 2.5 hours from my home in Carlisle, PA.  The Pennsylvania state park encompasses over 13,000 acres in Columbia, Luzerne, and Sullivan counties.

According to the website:
http://www.dcnr.pa.gov/StateParks/FindAPark/RickettsGlenStatePark/Pages/default.aspx - 

"Ricketts Glen harbors the Glens Natural Area -- a National Natural Landmark. Hike the Falls Trail System to explore the glens, which boasts a series of wild, free-flowing waterfalls, each cascading through rock-strewn clefts in this ancient hillside.

The 94-foot Ganoga Falls is the highest of 22 named waterfalls. Old growth timber and diverse wildlife add to the beauty."

Yesterday, I had the incredible privilege of joining with a group of hikers and we set off to enjoy the outrageous adventure.  Sometimes words simply fall short to tell a story that captures the intricate details of emotion that are weaved into experiencing such majestic beauty.  So, I invite you to view the photos below and let the whispers of your heart share the story...




Thankfully a fellow hiker was kind enough to let me borrow his vest - since it was a bit chilly.

Maria-What a beautiful waterfall. You had a nice size group to go hiking with. Love the top pic of you best but you take a great pic whichever one you are in. I will have to add this to my bucket list. I am headed in that direction next year.

Sharon Lee - Yes, yes, yes - do be sure to schedule Ricketts Glen onto your calendar... I was truly spellbound!!  I do recommend dressing in layers since especially this time of year, the air is cooler.  Thankfully a generous hiker shared his vest with me!  I certainly made quite a fashion statement!!

I am a sucker for waterfalls (although, to be fair I like the ones that I can wear a bathing suit to year round)!

Maria, loved the photos, reminded me of when I went to Kent Falls in CT, but my memory is a bit foggy since that was a hundred years ago:)Endre
