Bushkill Falls

Nestled in the beautiful Poconos, the Bushkill Falls,also known as the 'Niagara of Pennsylvania', is a series of 8 falls.It was first opened by Charles Peters in 1904 and is still owned by the Peters family.


The waters start at the Bushkill creek flowing toward Delaware river, forming 8 falls.The tallest, main falls forms as the stream falls off the edge of a 100 ft cliff.


The views of the embedded wooden bridges are scenic and spectacular.



This fall photo is from my hike in '06.



Honest Scrap!


Jyoti, Mythreyi, Sushma,Parita have passed me the honest scrap!Thanks a bunch, gals!

This award comes with the following rules:
I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it
I must list 10 honest things about myself
I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.
I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers and list their links
I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above three requirements also.

Here are 10 things about me:

-I love to watch cartoons and I follow the story of Dora or Diego or you name it! Every show that my daughter watches, although my favs have to be Tom and Jerry & Mickey. I find them very inspiring. I know its odd for my age!
-I am sentimental
-I am over protective of my daughter. I should change that and let go of her!
-I overreact to things/issues which are not worth the energy and time.
-I hate to use medicines for any problem that I have! I bear the pain through the night than take a Tylenol. My husband hates me for this :D :P
-I am known to be a secretive person among my friends as I don't open up easily
-I love collecting souvenirs, mostly magnets and I have one from every place/country I visited!
-When I fight with someone, I get itchy to patch up.
-I can cross stitch(Counted) for any no of hours
-I love ice skating....Oops..Watching!:D

Passing this onto:

Vaishali

Dear Shri, such beautiful pictures-- waterfalls always put my mind in a better place, and this one is just gorgeous.
Thanks for sharing your award with me-- I'm honored. And to answer your question about Pubm, my cat, her name is actually Pudding (my other cat's Pie :)) but we sort of shortened it to Pubm (pronounced Poo-bum-- now that does sound funny!)
