BUSHKILL FALLS - PENNSYLVANIA

August 20, 2011.  It was still early in the day when Paddy and I left Canal Day in Wharton, NJ.  I wondered if the bridge at Dingman's Ferry Pennsylvania was still operating, because it was years since I visited the area.  Sure enough, the bridge was still there, still privately owned and the toll taker had a friendly smile.  The toll was a dollar, imagine what is would be if the state owned the bridge....

         

 

Now in Pennsylvania, we checked the map and decided to visit Bushkill Falls.

 

We purchased our $10 senior tickets and proceeded down the trail toward the falls.

              

 

There were four trails easily marked by colored squares.  We took the popular YELLOW trail.  Near the beginning of the walk, some trails run parallel, ie, red and yellow together.

    

 

Trails start very high up and wind down toward the base of the falls.  First views of the falls were impressive including the great rushing sound of the water.

         

 

There were many vantage points to view the falls.  The pathways were well constructed and easy to use.

              

              

              

 

Having a pleasant visit to Bushkill Falls, we ended the day with a delicious meal at Alaska Pete's in Marshall's Creek, Pennsylvania.
