Destination: Glen Onoko Falls

Hello Everyone!
So in an attempt to continue providing frequent content on this site, a new category of posts is being created! It is called the destinations category. Destination posts will be about great places to visit to photograph. Unfortunately, because all of the Avid Vision writers are from the North East, most of the destinations will be located in either Pennsylvania or New York. If you have a place you would like to share, always feel free to leave it in the comments.

To start things off, I will write about a destination found in the The Poconos — Pennsylvania. It is called Lehigh Gorge State Park, and the park features a large number of waterfalls that vary in size. Ethereal

In order to access these waterfalls you will have to hike a pretty substantial hill, so if you are lazy, faint of heart, or inexperienced in hiking, you might not want to visit this destination. There are several sections of the trail where a rock scramble is required. Fortunately, the trail isn’t very long, so you can pack light. Overall the trail is only 1.7 miles round trip — you can opt for a 5 mile trail, but the majority of that trail leads you away from the waterfalls. It will take you anywhere from 1.5-3 hours to complete this trail, so if you get there early you can walk at a leisurely pace and take extra time to photograph the waterfalls.

Finding the trail head might be tough to those new to the area. If you use a GPS, you should end up at the park’s entrance — which is designated with a simple sign. Once you enter the park you should find yourself driving on a road that will eventually have a railroad next to it. Keep going until you pass a wooden bridge. Once you pass the wooden bridge you should come across several parking areas, park there. Once you park and gather your gear, head back to the wooden bridge and take the trail that leads underneath it. You should find a sign stating the dangers of hiking on the trail. Turn right at the sign to continue heading underneath the bridge, and simply follow the trail from there.

While driving along the park road, you may notice a cave along the side of the road. If you are interested, head inside! It’s fairly interesting.

  1. A slim belt will get you noticed, and if you have a pair of suede shoes,
    think about adding a special pair of laces to attract some attention.

    But people are more interested in discussing the
    three newly-released Maurice Lacroix Pontos D. The bezels are
    inlaid with genuine 34 cut diamonds while subtle detailing works are accented on the heart-shaped Krysterna crystal located above the date indicator.

  2. Hoover C2401 cleaner contains somewhat dome-like lid
    as well as a locking hose that allows you to examine the
    waste that the vacuum assembles in the clean up process.
    The attachments and unique design of the Bissell let you keep your home free of allergens and pet hair.
    It is also important that you should consider its form.

  3. Similar to channel settings, there are many accent used for the
    set using far less metal. The importance is certainly not based on the value of
    the metal, or the diamond or the cost of the diamond cast on gold or platinum.

    Let me be honest with you, it’s true – diamonds are in a girl’s best friend.
