Artist's Description

I wish my photographs could convey the magic found at Ricketts Glen. It’s one of my most favorite places and it’s always worth the 2+ hour drive it takes for me to get there. It’s wishful thinking to believe my work can do it justice, but I truly love the challenge of trying to bottle that special magic.

R. B. Ricketts Falls is a 36 foot waterfall at Ricketts Glen named after Robert Bruce Ricketts. Robert Bruce Ricketts (1839–1918) was a colonel in the Union Army in the American Civil War who fought at Gettysburg. He owned more than 80,000 acres (32,000 ha) at one time and sold most of its lumber. Ricketts did preserve the old growth forest in what became Ricketts Glen State Park, which is named for him. Ricketts named 21 waterfalls on Kitchen Creek and hired six workers to build the original Falls Trail from 1889 to 1893. The “exceedingly pleasant” R. B. Ricketts Falls is 0.24 miles (0.39 km) upstream of Waters Meet, and is the third named falls in Glen Leigh.
