Columcille Megalith Park

While I was searching for a place to photograph fall foliage I cam access this wonderful park located near Bangor, PA.

A land of myth and mystery located in the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Pennsylvania. The park rooted in Celtic spirituality and inspired by the Isle of Iona off the coast of Scotland. It’s an outdoor sanctuary open to the public as a sacred space for quiet meditation.

Dingmans Falls & Silverthread Falls

Fall Foliage

Dingmans Falls is second highest water fall in Pennsylvania, 130 feet. Located in Dingmans Ferry in Delaware Township, Pike County, northeastern Pennsylvania.

This easy to traverse flat boardwalk trail meanders gently through a pristine hemlock ravine. Almost immediately after starting the trail, Silverthread Falls drops 80 feet in a thin ribbon of water through a narrow geometric chute. The boardwalk winds through dense rhododendron shrubs, past tall hemlock with dense canopy, and the sound of a powerful waterfall just around the corner. The boardwalk ends at the base of Dingmans Falls. The final tenth of a mile is a staircase that leads to a birds-eye view from the upper falls.

One can’t help but notice the cool breeze and mist coming from these beautiful falls. There is a benches along way to sit and enjoy the beauty.
