I saved his life at the waterfall in Ricketts Glen SP

Ricketts Glen State Park in PA-001

We walked up stairs and stairs along the many waterfalls at Ricketts Glen in Pennsylvania. My husband (then boyfriend) took photographs all along the way. He got a little too adventurous, though, at one spot, and down he fell. His body started sliding down the slimy rocks along the edge of one, but it only took me a millisecond to react. I grabbed his arm with all my might, and hoisted him back to safety. The only injury that he experienced was a dent on the hood of his camera lens.

Elemental dangers

      I’m very lucky I have him. I’m pretty sure that helped in his decision to marry me.

    Lovely photo, and you’re his Superwoman! 🙂 Seriously, he could’ve been injured. We have a state park nearby called Clifton Gorge. It looks similar to your photo. Unfortunately, several people have died from falling off the trail. 😦

    Nature is wonderful but everyone should be careful, eh?

      Hi Melissa. It was scary. He got a little too adventurous trying to take photos.

      That’s so nice you have a similar place near you. We love Ricketts Glen so much we’ve been there a couple times since the incident.
