Ricketts Glen State Park

Today I went hiking in Ricketts Glen, one of the most beautiful Pennsylvania State Parks, with 22 cascading waterfalls. It was a cool Spring day, we wore jackets until we really got moving. It had been raining the day before, so the waterfalls were full and flowing! The new Spring growth had appeared, with the pretty light greens of the early season. We saw rolled up fiddlehead ferns on the trail.

This is one of the prettiest waterfalls in the park.



These white flowers were everywhere.
