Welcome to Bushkill Falls
The trees in the parking lot seem to promise great things to come on our hike
The Bushkill Falls Trail Map
Through the magic of Photo Paint, the gang is all here - Kevin, Linda, Larry, Amy, Lee, Vince, Kathy, Carol Carol, Carol, Gary, Kathy, and Sue.
The start of our hike directly out of the Bushkill Falls dead critter emporium
The stairway down to the Main Falls reminds you of the moving staircases in a Harry Potter movie.
Bushkill's Main Falls
Bushkill's Main Falls and it's catch basin
Bushkill's Main Falls and catch basin with the elaborate footbridge system weaving up, down and over the the hills and waterways of Bushkill in the distance
This is the torrent of water rushing over the Main Falls. Three weeks earlier, the summer drought had almost dried the falls up.
This is the view looking upstream from the Main Falls
The gang all nestled in a natural alcove directly across from Bushkill's Main Falls. From the left - Gary, Larry, Carol, Linda, Amy, Vince, Kathy, Lee, Sue, Carol Carol, and Kathy...
The view from above the catch basin and the elaborate stairway system Bushkill built to tour the natural wonders of Bushkill Falls...

These footbridges and stairways are right out of a Walt Disney movie.
Uh, this it the sign describing the next couple of shots...duh
The Lower Gorge Falls
This is where the Little Bushkill Creek meets Pond Run Creek and combines to become Big Bushkill Creek eventually flowing into the Delaware River
Big Bushkill Creek
Pond Run Creek contains the run off from the Bridal Veil Falls
The trail up to the Bridal Veil Falls area is one of the few trails not covered with footbridges and stairs. Amy, Lee, Sue, Vince, and Linda hike uphill like troopers...
Pond Run Creek
The first of the falls on the way up is a Bridesmaid falls. There are two. One above the Bridal Veil Falls and one below it. This is the lowest of the three.
Amy on the rocks just in front of the lower Bridesmaid Falls

The stairs to the top of Bridal Veil Falls and the Upper Bridesmaid are KILLER!!!
