Another from the archives. This is one of those luck favors the prepared kind of moments. A couple of years ago, Dad and I took a weekend photo trip to Colonial Williamsburg. While we were there we stumbled into a video shoot for an upcoming TV commercial, allowing us to photograph part of Duke of Gloucester Street without any non-colonial inhabitants.
Here’s one from the Archives. The Horse Pull at the Great Frederick Fair is a tradition the first Friday of the fair. While it is no longer held at the Grandstand, it is still a fun event. It is incredible seeing the excitement of the horses as they approach the sled. These workhorse breeds are impressive equine athletes.
Another waterfall located in Blackwater Falls State Park, Elakala Falls is actually a series of four waterfalls as Shay Run drops into Blackwater Canyon. The upper portion shown above, is visible from a bridge directly above the Falls. Getting to the bottom requires some effort. I also made it down to the second section but couldn’t find the trail to the sections below that. Based on the trail descriptions I’ve seen, getting to the lower two sections is very difficult.
Cucumber Falls is located in Ohiopyle State Park in Pennsylvania and is the result of Cucumber Run falling into the gorge carved by the Youghiogheny River. A staircase leads to the base of the Falls making it a popular location to photograph.
I had also hoped to visit Jonathan Run Falls and Sugar Run Falls while I was there, but the trails were closed due to the bridges being washed out. Hopefully they’ll be repaired soon. If time allows I may make another trip to Ohiopyle this fall.
