About Me

My photo
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.

Rock Run Falls

Beauty certainly abounds in our little corner of the world.  We are blessed with countless trails in our area but unfortunately not everyone can enjoy them either due to physical constraints or possibly just a lack of motivation.  If the latter is the case that is such a pity because they are missing out on so much.  It's very understandable that the physical constraints prevent many from hiking the trails but thankfully there is so much beauty that can be enjoyed by driving down our many back roads and highways. 

Okay enough rambling already.  It should be pretty apparent that we have an attraction to backwoods waterfalls.  So many times we have hiked along a small mountain stream in search of the perfect surprise where Mother Nature flicked her magic wand. She placed a rock here and a rock there and she stacked boulder after boulder and then ran a mountain stream right down the center of it to produce a backwoods waterfalls.  We enjoy the splendor of these places more than words can describe.  There is no better way to feel completely embraced in the arms of Mother Nature.

I believe I'm rambling again.  So where is this waterfalls you may ask and does it have a name.  It's actually along the Bucktail Path which is a 33 mile trail from Sizerville to Sinnemahoning.  But before you have a coronary, relax, you don't have to hike all 33 miles.  If you do your homework you can enjoy these falls with just a nice afternoon hike.  As far as the name, we don't know if there is an official name but we and many others refer to it as Rock Run Falls.  It's an awesome place and a very enjoyable hike.

This falls is real nice but the picture doesn't do it justice.  I shot this photo with an inexpensive point and shoot and the makeshift tripod was a boulder.

The Image's that you have taken look just fine to me.

Happen to come across your Blog and noticed something you do that we did a number of years ago, and that's Tour the USA on a Honda Goldwing. We used to ride a 89 Wing and pull a Trailer. Was a great thing to do, but the traffic and "nit-wits" on the road gave us the urge to stop. I miss going out on a summer eve for a supper ride or ice cream run. Have met many fine people over the years riding that Wing.

Best Wishes to you and ride safe.
