Wanting to try my first bushwhack and being a huge fan of Ricketts Glen, I had high hopes for this hike. It did not disappoint.
Marking the eastern extent of Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain ridge, Mount Minsi rises to 1,461 feet along the Appalachian Trail.
Shots are mainly with a new excellent little lens I got for my Fuji X-A1 – the Voigtlander Heliar 15mm f/4.5.
Known only for these particular summits and the gigantic Cabela’s, little Hamburg, PA hosts one of the best hikes in the state: Pinnacle and Pulpit Rock.
One of the impressive features of the waterfalls at Ricketts Glen is both how closely spaced and how varied they are. Not only are the falls themselves dramatically different, but they vary themselves as the seasons change and as the water level changes.
Apologies to my friends in New York and New Jersey, but Sandy was not much here in West Chester.
We teamed up with another couple to do a fairly interesting 8-mile loop hike near Hamburg, PA – the Pinnacle and Pulpit Rock.
My friend and fellow photographer Stephen Gushue joined me for a hike along Ricketts Glen’s Falls Trail, which encompasses 21 waterfalls in its inspiring 8-mile loop.
