Hiking the Delaware Water Gap - Adams Falls


Hiking the Delaware Water Gap - Adams Falls


Let me preface this batch of photographs by stating clearly that the hike to Adams Falls is not easy. There is one particular section that will be challenging for those who are unstable on their feet and not athletic, which requires you to scale this rather high, vertical rock wall. We witnessed one family with small children turn around at this point, which was probably a wise decision but unfortunate as well because the falls lie right beyond this section.

With this out of the way, I overall enjoyed the natural beauty of the waterfall and hiking trail that led to it. The actual enjoyment of the falls was only blighted by the large quantity of people who were there, some of them not so respectively as they were smoking cigarettes (among other things from what I could tell). I have since learned that this is more or less a “hot spot” for college aged crowds. Of course, this is no problem at all, but let’s all at least respect each other and the environment we are in.

Gollub Park is found tucked away neatly amongst a semi-populated residential area in Easton, Pennsylvania. It is one of those local parks that you wouldn’t want to drive a long distance to visit (and I wouldn’t recommend it!), but if you live or are visiting the area, it’s well deserving of your time, especially if you want to see some unique views of the area from a place that is not traveled heavily at all.

Here at Plant Smart Living we love sharing natural experiences with you. A member of our team went on a leisurely walk into a piece of industrial history found in Northampton, Pennsylvania. Without a doubt, there was some hesitation before arriving as to whether or not this trip would be worth it, as the photos and testimonials we were able to find online did not necessarily give us the impression this would be a large area to explore or overly worthwhile, but we took the plunge anyways. Upon arriving, we discovered that this walking path was well maintained and featured a playground for the kids. The old remnants of the industrial boom in PA, the cement kilns, were on full display to the public. They are truly breathtaking and visible from the parking area. The sheer scale of the kilns was impressive. While I love nature, seeing these ruins is quite unique, especially given how we place some emphasis on DIY/construction here at PSL as well.
