A few days ago I was feeling really bitter at Mama Nature that fall was over so quickly. But there is nothing like the magic of the first snowfall to get me excited for winter! This was taken in January 2018. • Note: I left the graffiti in this image — imagine this beautiful scene without it.

The early signs of Autumn at Hell’s Hollow Falls, McConnells Mill State Park.
Get outside, enjoy the snow, and #RepresentPA with the Susquehanna Hat. ❄️

We are supposed to get 5 to 7 inches of white stuff today!!! It’s snowing now and my kids are giddy. They just turned on the Christmas music, while I am throwing back to a warmer day in Cook Forest when a snow day didn’t seem like a near possibility! . . . . . . . . . #throwbackthursday #throwbackthursdays #cookforest #pennsylvania #pennsylvania_life #pennsylvaniawilds #picoftheday #mood #instagood #instapic #instagram #naturephotography #nature #forest #forestlife #smalltown #smalltownlife #smalltownliving #countryliving #countrylife #naturalpennsylvania #wanderlust #westernpennsylvania #enchantedforest #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful
30 Days of Thanks Challenge, Day 14: Snow ❄️ Don’t go and call me crazy yet - I’m not thankful for snow all the time. Most days I hate it because it means it’s cold and I can’t stand being cold. But I do appreciate the fact that we get to experience all four seasons, and there’s something about the first snow that always gets me. I think it’s that it finally starts to feel like the most wonderful time of the year. It kick starts the holiday season for me and really gets my Christmas spirit going. So with that said, and all the snow we’re suppose to get over the next couple days, you can find me decorating this weekend. 🎅🏼🎄☃️ . . . . . #30daysofthanks #30daysofgratitude #iamgrateful #iamthankful #iamblessed #gratefulthankfulblessed #sbacpresets #mckeancounty #smethportpa #pawilds #teampawild #scenicpennsylvania #naturalpennsylvania #pennsylvaniascenery #pennsylvanianature #pennsylvanialiving #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvaniasunset #pennsylvaniahills #pennsylvaniaphotography #pennsylvania_life #pennsylvania_lovers #northwesternpa #pa_explorations #pacollective #paoutdoors #uncoveringpa #visitpa #firstsnow #pennsylvaniawinter

Bald Eagle State Forest's 2nd most famous waterfall soaking in those fall colors~ And yes, technically, it's not a waterfall, but that's fine... Also, just up the road from this spot, we saw a bald eagle at the top of the mountain, fly out of the trees. It was the first time we saw one in the mountains. ▪ ▪ 🍁 ▪ ▪ #baldeaglestateforest #hooknaturalarea #pacollective #naturalpennsylvania #scenicpa #onlyinpennsylvania #pa_explorations #eastcoastcreatives #northeastcollective #rsa_outdoors #earthoutdoors #wildernessnation #roamtheplanet #amongthewild #letskeepitwild #stayandwonder #exploretocreate #optoutside #takemoreadventures #exploreourearth #earthfocus #nature_good #nature_captures #ig_discover_nature #fiftyshades_of_nature #igtones #splendid_shotz #nature_brilliance #sonyalpha #sonya6000
Good morning my friends, Autumn meets Winter... We have a lot of snow forecast for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania today and tomorrow as the first touches of Winter are being felt already in some parts of the state! The snowbelt of northwestern PA has already been slammed with over a foot of snow around Erie County, where this beautiful photo of a cozy November scene was taken by our friend @darlagraffphotography. Erie gets nailed with snow each November through April. The areas of Erie County that are inland gets even more as the precipitation eminating from Lake Erie blows inland and freezes as it travels further from the lake. I absolutely love Darla's photo as it brings the seasons together. A crisp layer of snow draped over Fall leaves is magical... Get out there this week and enjoy yourselves! Thank you very much @darlagraffphotography for sharing such a beautiful image. Please check out her gallery and give her a follow!

This guy missed out on most of the rut excitement this year, but he’ll have a chance to join the fun soon. He seemed pretty tired nonetheless!
Little bit of fall color peeking out from behind the marsh at Dunlap Creek Lake Park. This really is a pretty place! I heard about it in a group I belong to on Facebook & after seeing so many pretty shots, I decided to see it for myself last week. Can’t wait to go back! . . #wpabeauty #westernpa #pennsylvania #nature #wildflowers #pa #fayettecounty #naturelovers #naturalpennsylvania #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #keystonemade #panature ##pacollective #explorepa #dunlapcreeklake #foliage #fallfoliage #fallcolors #lake #uniontownpa
So after a couple months of taking pictures and over a week waiting for them to be developed, I’m extremely disappointed to find out that out of 110 pictures, only these three sort of turned out 😞Apparently there’s something wrong with my camera 😩 . . . . . . #photography #art #camera #pennsylvaniaphotographer #pennsylvaniaartist #explore #adventure #nature #outdoors #Erie #Pennsylvania #eriepa #LakeErie #GreatLakes #eriepennsylvania #eriephotographer #pafeatured #erieitesunite #naturalpennsylvania #pacollective #abandonedjunkies #abandonedhouse #eerie #explore #adventure #film #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #filmphotographer #filmphotographic #35mm #35mmphotography
If it does indeed snow tomorrow, today was a pretty glorious autumn send-off. Our first fall in Pennsylvania has definitely not been a disappointment. 🧡🧡🧡
Looks like the falls trail is closed for the season...time for ice climbing gear again!
The Falls Trail is closed already! This is Shawnee Falls from October 17th. Not a lot of autumn color then compared to last year. Forecast for tomorrow is 5-8” of snow! ❄️ I have the shovel and snow brush ready. I’m excited to see how my new tires fare. • • • #shawneefalls #rickettsglen #rickettsglenstatepark #pastateparks #pennswoods #waterfall #waterfallwednesday #waterfallsfordays #pawaterfalls #pacollective #scenicpa #pa_explorations #pafeatured #naturalpennsylvania #hikepa #longexposure #longexpoelite #lazyshutters #landscapelovers #naturehippys_ #ethereal_moods #intothewoods #forestmagic #forestbathing #bestforestmood #enchanting_forest #nature_brilliance #divine_forest #visitpa #raw_longexposure

The calm of still water and morning’s first light —————————————- - - - - #autumn #pacollective #naturalpennsylvania #hikepa #kettlecreek #scenicpa #fallhikes #home
Another Wednesday, another one of Ricketts Glen's awesome waterfalls. This was actually the toughest shot of the day for me, and not because of the photography-side of things. I wanted to get off the path where everyone was taking selfies, so I wandered down to the water to find a composition and purposely chose a spot where my back was to a giant rock so that way I wouldn't be in anyone's pictures. The problem? The next wave of tourists/hikers (whatever you want to call us 😅) walked down the path, saw me with my hardcore-looking gear, and decided that I must have found a cool picture. So the next thing you know, I have ~20 people all around me--walking into my frame to take selfies--on their way to stand on the rock behind me with their phones inches away from my head, taking this exact shot over my shoulder. So frustrating when you go out of your way to A) not get in anyone else's shots and B) not get anyone in your shots, and people still go out of *their* way to ruin both of those plans...To be fair, I probably brought it upon myself wandering off the path in a high-traffic area 🤔 Oh well. On the bright side, I'm flattered they liked this shot so much they had to have it for themselves 😂 Rant over, enjoy your evening 👍 . . . . #theworldshotz #worldshotz #keystonemade #main_vision #ig_shotz #sonya7rii #pafeatured #explorepennsylvania #visitpa #ig_worldphoto #waterfallsfordays #bestforestmood #naturalpennsylvania #pennsylvaniaphotographer #pacollective #pennsylvania_life #enchanting_forest #scenicpa #pa_explorations #princely_shotz #sonyphotography #splendid_shotz #onlyinpennsylvania #uncoveringpa #pawilds #raw_longexposure #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #inspiring_photography_admired #jaw_dropping_shots #waterfallscollective
Pine Creek Gorge . . . The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania! I have always enjoyed this peaceful view of #pinecreek looking south at #LeonardHarrisonStatePark .

Ricketts Glen, just outside of Scranton, in north east Pa, is arguably the most beautiful park in all of Pennsylvania. Home to 24 waterfalls, this one is far from the largest, to me it’s one of the most photogenic and beautiful though. What do you guys and gals think?

At any time of year, the winding roads at @7springspa are beautiful. Wether it’s covered in snow or drowned in falls color, it’s always an incredible sight. Looking forward to that snow real soon!
I found a little bit of color. It’s getting very spotty tho 🍂🍁#fall #foliage #naturalpennsylvania #VisitPA #scenicpennsylvania #pennsylvania_wild #montgomerycounty #lorimerpark

Have you ever been to Ricketts Glen State Park? Most of the falls at Ricketts Glen are in plain view along the trail. But if you’re not paying attention, you’ll miss a few small hidden ones. . . _____________________________________ • Canon 80D + EF-S 10-18mm 10mm, 10 secs, F22, ISO 100 _____________________________________ Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania . . . . . . #rickettsglen #rickettsglenstatepark #waterfallwednesday @pastateparks #pastateparks #parks #waterfalls #waterfall #longexpo #longexposure #landscape @theoutbound #theoutbound #waterfallsfordays #chasingwaterfalls #hiking #visitpa #splendid_shotz #exploretocreate #waterfallphotography #waterfallchasing #bestnatureshot #waterfallsofinstagram #pawaterfalls #scenicpa #landscapephotomag #naturalpennsylvania
You can find the beauty in nature everywhere! Occasionally it just requires a closer look 😀🐝🌸 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 📸 Nikon D750 Sigma Photo 150mm F2.8 EX DG APO HSM Macro lens
In the woods walking on a trail keeping my head up in search of a lookout. My camera stopped a few moments in between to look at. I always forget that there is so much more than just a beautiful view at the peak of a mountain but my camera reminds me that there is more than just the overlook. . . . #scenicpa #pennsylvania #eastcoastcreatives #nature #natgeo #pennsylvaniaphotographer #pennsylvania_life #naturalpennsylvania #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #pennsylvanialiving #alltrails #trailadventure #film #filmphotography #filmisnotdead #filmcamera #35mmphotography #35mmfilmphotography #complex #hypebeast

At Ricketts Glen trying to answer the eternal question 🤷🏻‍♀️of whether or not we are out of the woods 🍂 yet... • • I have no idea, but you’re welcome for getting that TSwift song stuck in your head 😉 (Just me?

Just me 🏃‍♀️ + 🍂+ ☀️ How does it get any better than this? If you’re reading this right now and in a place where you’re not running, or you just don’t feel like running… That’s OK too. I’ve been there also, and whatever you’re doing to return to doing what you love is more important than running right now. It’s only for a season, just like nature. Or if you’re just not ‘feeling it’ when it comes to running and you’re choosing to do something that does make you feel awake and WILD... then keep going. Keep doing that! Do whatever makes your soul say...how does it get any better than this? 😍More talks about this at JenniHulburt.com/Coaching #naturalpennsylvania
Located about 2 hours north of Harrisburg, PA, Ricketts Glen State Park 🎒boasts something like 26 miles of trails and 20+ waterfalls. • • The Falls Trail is about 7 miles long 👟 and loops you by most of the falls. Categorized as ‘unblazed’ and ‘difficult’, I assumed we’d be clutching a compass 🗺 and trying to follow fresh hiker tracks👣. Those more in touch with reality could probably ascertain that it means the trail is evident but also rocky and steep ⛰. Which is true. (No compass or tracks were used in the taking of this picture 📸.) • • While the trail is doable in damp💧, chilly🍁 weather, it did make the rocks slippery and I was ever glad for the walking stick. I definitely would not attempt in any sort of icy ❄️ conditions. • • #wanderwomeninc #hikingculture #trekkingtoes #hikingheartbeat #neoaventura #traveldreamseekers #femaletravelbloggers #travelgirlsgo #iamtb #liveauthentic #letsgosomewhere #exploreeverywhere #neverstopexploring #keepitwild #wildernessculture #getoutstayout #keepexploring #lifeofadventure #exploreeverything #folktravel #visualwanderlust #welivetoexplore #adventurethatislife #exploretocreate #stayandwander #optoutside #beautifulpennsylvania #pacollective #naturalpennsylvania #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful
That face when you don’t hike 🎒 but somehow find yourself doing 7.5 miles 👟 in partial rain ☔️... • • This beautiful area is now Rickett’s Glen State Park 🌳, but was originally inhabited and shepherded by the Iroquois before the Treaty of Fort Stanwix in 1768. ( @padcnr can we get some Indigenous history added to the Ricketts DCNR page? Thanks!) • • While I love being outside, I don’t really consider myself a ‘hiker’. (I blame the girl bosses in my life who are killer hikers) But, I do want to know about other not-so-hard hikes that can make me feel cool without involving a tent ⛺️. Let me know in the comments! • • #padcnr #rickettsglenstatepark #rickettsglen #lifeofadventure #liveauthentic #letsgosomewhere #alwaysgo #freedomthinkers #wanderfolk #exploreeverything #finditliveit #visualwanderlust #exploreeverywhere #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #keepexploring #adventurethatislife #adventurevisuals #keepitwild #agameoftones #theoutbound #exploretocreate #wildernessculture #stayandwander #optoutside #getoutstayout #beautifulpennsylvania #pacollective #naturalpennsylvania #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful
