Midway Crevasse is found on the Highland Trail at Ricketts Glen State Park. The Highland Trail connects both the Ganoga Glen and Glen Leigh portions of the Falls Trail, and is usually the first leg of my hike at Ricketts Glen.

I had my doubts this trip, it was so wet I couldn’t tell if it was raining or if it was just coming off the canopy as the breeze caught the treetops.

    Excellent Tim! Love the moody mist and that is such a unique section of the Highland Trail!

  • Thanks Lori!! I’m soooo tired. Got to see all the waterfalls and drive through a wicked storm on the way home. I feel like I got hit by a truck!

    Awesome capture. I love the mist.

  • Thanks Mark! It was very misty up top for most of the morning. Almost too misty for the bigger waterfalls.

    Awesome shot, Tim! So moody …incredibly effective. I’m very relieved that the storms didn’t hit while you were still out on the trail. Excellent shot!

  • I was really worried about getting rained on, the morning seemed almost more threatening than the afternoon. My bag was pretty wet before I even made it over to the Glen Leigh side. I’m sooooo glad I got out of there before the line of storms came through. I drove through an incredible deluge below Frackville…maybe one other time in my life I’ve seen it rain that hard. Thank you for the kind words Gene!

    Oh yeah! There ya go! Marvelous

  • Thank you Glenn! I’m always hurrying past this spot on my way to the waterfalls and I said to myself I was going to stop this time given the mist that was draped over everything. I saw these beautiful plants and I knew that I had to work them into the shot. Thanks again!

    I love the balancing rock. A beautiful scene Tim.

  • Much appreciated, thank you Michael! I feel like a schmuck given how many times I’ve hiked through this spot and not pulled my camera out. It was a real “duh” moment for me! Thanks again!

    Wow, awesome shot!! I absolutely love the composition in this.. the leading line created by the undergrowth controls the eye perfectly in such a misty environment! The balancing rock is a treat for the eye through the fog! So cool, well shot!!

  • Thank you Kevin! This is the first time I’ve photographed the midway crevasse, I always seem to be hurrying through it. Couldn’t pass up the mist and the beautiful patch of plants. Really glad I stopped and spent some time there.

    beautiful composition and exposure! love the mood

  • Thanks Dave, I had water dripping into my backback while shooting this…..I didn’t notice until I went to pack up and move on. Was really pretty there though, I’m glad I stopped on my way to the waterfalls.

    Beautiful capture

  • Thank you Joy, I was glad I stopped and took some time here. With all the waterfalls around it’s easy to take this spot for granted.

    A fantastic capture Tim.

  • Thank you Don, it was miserably wet and I was fretting about whether I’d be able to do the falls and keep my equipment dry enough. I saw this view and I perked up a little! :-) Thanks again!
