Great Falls National Park (Maryland Side)

Great Falls National Park (Maryland Side)

Tucked away in the bustling metropolis of Northern Virginia is Great Falls National Park. Just a 30 minute drive from DC gets you a great escape from the hustle and bustle of life in the city. Great Falls features both a Virginia and Maryland side. My personal favorite is the Maryland side. The picture above was taken on my birthday back on May 5th at one of the overlooks. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend my birthday…

Crabtree Falls

Crabtree Falls

Crabtree Falls is located in the George Washington National Forest and is known for being one of the tallest sets of waterfalls in the United States East of the Mississippi River.

As an avid waterfall chaser I had to add this one to my list. I woke up very early to hike this…

Crossing the bridge takes you towards the lower trail which…

Buttermilk Falls

Buttermilk Falls

The tallest waterfall in the state of New Jersey. Buttermilk Falls is located on the New Jersey side of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. This waterfall cascades 90 feet down the Kittatinny Ridge. I almost missed out on seeing this waterfall. With it being winter time, some of the roads were closed. I originally tried driving in from the north, but the dirt road was closed so I attempted to drive in through the south. The road was…

Roaring Run Falls

Roaring Run Falls

Roaring Run Falls is located in the Roaring Run Recreational Area. This waterfall was only about a 0.61 mile hike to the falls with a loop of 1.5 miles. I made my up on the Streamside Trail and back down on the Woodland Trail. The Streamside Trail was very scenic and crossed over a few rustic stone bridges. The trail was fairly easy. This hike even features a natural waterslide! Too bad it was winter time! On the way back…

Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes

The question I’ve been asked one too many times and I’m you all are just dying to know. How on earth did I take this amazing picture? I created a little animated GIF as seen below to give you all a behind the scenes look. There you have it folks! And No, I do NOT have a professional photographer following me around everywhere I go. (Although, sometimes I do have friends come with me).  I balanced my Go Pro Hero 4…
