Waterfalls

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.

Having been to Watkins Glen State Park and the little college town of Ithaca, the team here at Plant Smart Living decided to make another trek into Upstate NY to see some more sights that were overlooked during the previous adventures. We decided to go to Taughannock Falls State Park as from photos we saw on Google, it appeared to be just our kind of place!

One of the most beautiful and easy to miss natural wonders on the East Coast of the United States is Watkins Glen State Park. A member of our Plant Smart Living team took two trips up to see the beautiful gorge within the span of a few months, and brought back a few stories and photographs to share.

You may have heard of Ithaca before. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising considering it is well known for the college it harbors: Cornell University. If the university doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps a well-known instructor and scientist, Dr. Carl Sagan, author of the science book Cosmos and star of the educational television series developed in the late 70s of the same name, might. Regardless of your feelings towards these little cultural facts, it is hard to deny the beauty of the landscape the relatively small town of Ithaca resides within. In fact, I decided to take the 3 hour journey from my home to visit the many waterfalls and Great Seneca Lake that resides within miles of the city because it appeared to be a relatively low key and beautiful place, while still having the “luxury” of some historical fame.
