Artist's Description

This is a wider view of R. B. Ricketts than the first capture I posted a few days ago. There’s something about this one that keeps drawing me back as I go through the captures from my last trip to Ricketts Glen. The forest greenery on the left side of the frame just captivates me.

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.
