The first waterfall I saw at Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania... Wasn't able to do the complete hike on this trip, lots of icy spots and I felt it was too dangerous, I know, i'm a chicken ... hoping to come back this spring for more!!
Thanks Addam! Next time you get out east, you and LeeAnne need to go here (she said it's only 3-4 hours from her)! I tried to get her to meet us there but there is that thing called work and responsibility, something I don't know much about as of recently Life is great!!
Oh, I get it alright, it was Cooler than Cool! I was layered well, but I climb all over tree trunks and got all wet from the snow (I should have worn snow pants ) the kicker was when I decided to get in the stream and misjudged the depth, ooooops, stepped in over my waterproof boots so I had a wet cold foot! It was a great day!!
You're going to have to go to Cabelas.com and get yourself a pair or two of Ice Trekkers [link] I have 3 pair of them--put them on everytime it snows and don't take them off until I can see dirt again. I can and will gaurantee they are worth every penny! They are kind of hard on hardwood floors but you won't slip on ice or packed snow
Thanks so much for the advice John! I had on a great pair of crampons and they really worked great, but this one area was only about a foot wide, totally covered with thick slippery (I assume, I didn't try it) ice and it was a frozen icy 50 foot drop! They recommended that you carry ice axes and rope, I didn't have them but if that is ever the recommendation again, I will listen!!
