Default Dinghams Falls - Delaware Gap Pa.

We woke up with the warm fuzzies
Dinghams Falls - Delaware Gap Pa.-p1090937.jpg
With nature clawing at us from all sides
Dinghams Falls - Delaware Gap Pa.-p1090930.jpg
and a blocked entry we proceeded in.....

With quite the walk ahead of us, we located the falls

And then some....

As Equill turned she noticed what was it? a coyote or light colored fox waltz by!

We headed back to our little nest...... of a car

On the way, I noticed my first ever outside of a green house....Yellow foxglove growing alongside the road.

Without knowing what lay ahead,
it's hard to put any sort of a rating upon the park although I had a big feeling there were more falls in store if we had proceeded on.

Very exciting pixs, I'm sure I like the waterfall & the foxglove shots.

I absolutely LOVE that shot.

Do you mind if I copy it to my hard drive? I want it for inspiration for my backyard water garden project (not that I could do it justice, but imagine if I COULD!). I'd love to have something as beautiful in our backyard.

NOT at all Mr Dap! What's mine is yours. When you start making money having weddings alongside your completed stream just remember...........
Where to send the royalties for its ongoing use.

Is there a doctor in the house?
I was checking into maps and directions for Sage and realized I've miss-spelled the name of the park.

Should-could or need it be changed to read correct? From Dinghams ferry to Dingmans falls.
Both the ferry and the falls are very near one another.

I was having that feeling there was more to see if we had kept walking along the stream... So I looked it up. Oh YES!
The main falls. https://www.google.com/search?q=ding...w=1163&bih=826

What happened to our fuzzy wittle caterpillar photos!!! Mine didn't turn out that great either and I thought for sure they would. That's not a wooly bear... 5 brownie points for anyone who knows what the fuzzy wittle caterpillar is!!!

Dingman Falls was "closed" when we visited.... imagine that!!! The tree roots dangling down to the river were spotted on our walk in which.... was very peaceful since.... we were the only people in Dingman Falls!!!!
