Ricketts Glen State Park – A Three Day Adventure
Michael Pucciarelli and Ella Carlson are leading our Fall Tag Along in Pennsylvania. Ricketts Glen State Park is one of the most popular and beautiful parks in Pennsylvania. If you want to see many waterfalls or dramatic views, this park is a must visit for all nature/landscape photographers. In this park, the 22 waterfalls are within a few hundred feet of each other. This park is also great for any wildlife photographer. The scenic views are worth trying experiments with all kinds of photography.
There are many ways to enjoy this park. I recommend two ways:
Explore the 22 waterfalls – There are two trails.
A beginner trail.
A more difficult trail.
Explore the beautiful views/wildlife of this park.
There are lakes with beautiful reflections.
Depending on the time for this event, leaf colors are worth exploring.
Early mornings are great for capturing wildlife or fog with trees.
Three Day Safari below:
Scenic Day 11/17/23 – This will be a day to explore the scenic views by photographing foggy lakes in the morning. This would be a good time to photograph any bears or deer. After the morning is over, it is time to photograph the colorful trees. When it is late afternoon time or close to sunset time, more wildlife photography is possible. This would also be the time to capture some sunsets.
Water Fall Day 11/18/23 – This will be a full day to explore all or some of the falls.
Museum Day 11/19/23 – This day is about exploring the museums or small shops that sell crafts or collectibles. Nature shops are in this area, and these are worth exploring. This area has plenty of great restaurants. People can choose their own restaurants or they can eat in groups together.
