We took a long weekend in the Poconos in Eastern Pennsylvania.  Enjoyed a lot of winter activities including hiking, sledding, ice skating, dog sledding, zip line, and a tour on a UTV.  The UTV tour took us to the top of a mountain for a beatiful view and to the bottom of the valley and into Indian Ladder Falls.

The “steps” of the ladder allowed native American Indians to escape capture by climbing the”ladder” to the top of the falls.  There are steep walls on both sides of the valley and the trail ends at the falls.  By the way, in August, the area hits a dry season and the falls dry up.  No water flows during that time.
