About Me

We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Eternal Flame Falls

In an earlier post I stated that every falls has something that makes it unique and special.  So you might ask what is so special about this waterfalls?  To begin with it is a major falls with at least a 40 foot drop.  To access this place you need to hike into a pretty deep and treacherous gorge.  Once you arrive at the base of the falls, the reward is obvious.  Not only is it an awesome waterfalls but what makes it especially unusual is the Eternal Flame that burns back behind the falls.  There is a fissure in the rocks where natural gas seeps out and supports a steady flame.  Once in awhile the water will extinguish the flame but it's fairly simple to relight it.  Is this awesome or what!!!

The flame is clearly visible to the far right of us.
