Indian Ladder Falls by Skytop in the Pocono Mts. ~ (from the flikr photostream of Steve de Neef) The Falls are said to be haunted by the spirits of Native Americans who were climbing the falls to avoid capture by white men in the 1700's. Some of them did not make it to the top, and now they haunt the falls and surrounding forest.
The Poconos of Pennsylvania are among the state’s most popular tourist destinations. The region’s covered bridges are popular for cycling trips, while numerous lakes and rivers attract fishing enthusiasts. By autumn’s peak, the maple trees that dominate the area turn shades of orange and fiery red.
