a long wait

We finally made it back to Bushkill!

The first time we went in 2001. It had been a dry summer so the falls were really just trickling. Besides that, Lou had hurt his knee and climbing around wasn't the best idea for him. We didn't get very far before we gave up and decided to return another time.

3 years later! for about 3 or 4 weekends now, we have tentatively planned on going to Bushkill, and every weekend it has rained! Luckily this past weekend, and our 5 year anniversary, we had the gift of a perfect day to fully explore Bushkill Falls!

Pros and Cons

    Great page, it is beautiful around there and tons of stuff to do. Great advice about taking out what you bring in-I hate when people ruin nature!

    I was actually here about 15 or so years ago, and I didn't even recall that I was here until I saw your photos. They sparked something in me. Thanks!
