Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania exploring the beautiful outdoors by foot and kayak and spending the nights under the stars. I'm typically planning my next adventure before the current one ends and of course e...

The Canadian Caribbean!

This was a easy hike with some nice views and the water at First Lake was unbelievable, I'm not sure photos do it justice. It looked like I was in the Caribbean with snowcapped mountains for a backdrop!

FYI - Trail Closed due to mud slide

This trail is currently closed due to a mud slide, but you can still access the waterfall by linking up with the West Rim Trail from West Rim Road.

Spend the Night, do some star gazing!

This is a rather simple hike and it offers great views. I backpacked and spent the night. There is a great primitive site. I went out star gazing once it got dark. Amazing views at night.

Great base camp!

I arrived and set up camp on a Friday evening. Great spots & options at the start of Tibbet Knob Trail if the 9 Camping spots are full. Next day I backpacked and camped at Big Schloss and then the following night to Tibbet Knob! A place I would return to!

Another Easy Access Beautiful Waterfall

The trail is a short hike on a boardwalk, great for all to check out this waterfall. It's a worthwhile stop!

Beautiful & Easy Access

Impressive waterfall with easy access. If you are in the area, it can be a quick stop to experience this waterfall. However, disappointed that the area prohibits dogs.

Beautiful Location!

Bushkill has some beautiful waterfalls & very well maintained trails & walkways. Although it's a beautiful outdoor location, it is also a tourist location and is very crowded. That & the fee is why it is 4 stars

Awesome location!

I have visited many lighthouses, this is easily my favorite, great location that provides opportunity for a variety of photo compositions. If you are traveling through the Outer Banks, this is a must stop!

Awesome Falls & Trail

Beautiful large waterfall, but be sure to hike the trail to enjoy more great waterfalls. Beautiful location and well worth the visit.

Amazing 360 Views

I hit Dee Wright up for sunrise, I had the area all to myself. Awesome 360 views. Definitely worth the trip and early rise to check it out!

Accessible and Amazing

Sparks Lake is stunning and offers several great camp spots to boat to. The place is incredibly photogenic and is a must do if in Central Oregon. I am looking forward to traveling from Pennsylvania to Oregon again just to camp at Sparks!

Amazing Golden Hours

The red rock makes more some of the most amazing light and landscapes. If in central Oregon, you must catch this place at the golden hours!

Good Warm up!

When I arrived in Bend from Pennsylvania, I went to Pilot Butte the first evening for sunset. Great first spot to check out, great panoramic view of the town and the mountains in the distance. It get's you pumped for exploring the surrounding areas!

Stunning blue river surrounded by lush green forest.

This hike is vibrant with color. This hike is absolutely scenic. The loop takes you past two major falls, but several smaller cascades and the pools are a beautiful blue color. The area was quite crowded, but it is a place worth visiting.

A Mystical Place

A rather easy hike to a breathtaking waterfall, don't stop at the view point, it is a must to get to the bottom and look up. It is like something out of a fairy tale!

Easy access, great view!

This is a simple easy to get to and has a great view. I have also hiked to this in the winter when the road was iced over. Fall is probably the best time to visit!

Explore, explore explore

Rock Run is definitely a great spot to explore, there are several small tributaries to Rock Run that are interesting to hike. If you are in the area, it is a worth while spot to check out.

Stunning in the Autumn

This is a beautiful gorge and absolutely stunning in the Autumn. Great hike with several waterfalls and cascades. Very photogenic!

Steep but worth it!

Excellent little hike, nice waterfalls, especially after a rain. The trail takes you all the way down to Pine Creek which you just looked at from above at the overlooks.

Simple and Family Friendly

Great location to get some impressive views of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Great for all ages!

Awesome Hike, Beautiful waterfall

This is definitely a great place to get away from the crowds, Lick Brook Falls is stunning after a good rainfall! Don't overlook this gem when visiting Ithaca!

Get there Early!

Stunning park, it is a simple beautiful hike through a gorge with several impressive and unique waterfalls. As a photographer, get there early to avoid crowds and get unobstructed photos.

Great side adventure if paddling section 2 of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail

Completed this hike while paddling section 2 of the NFCT. We camped on Middle Saranac Lake taking a day off of paddling to get an elevated view of our paddling trail. The panoramic views were incredible. From the summit you can see in every direction and for us paddling the NFCT, we would see our start and end points and our path we would continue the next day.

Stunning Views

I spent 4 days backpacking the AT starting at Indian Grave Gap through Yellow Mountain and spent nights at epic shelts Roan High Knob and Overmountain Shelter, The Barn. It was an incredible experience and stunning views through the balds. A place I wouldn't mind revisiting!
