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:
"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.
