Glen Onoko Falls

If I had to rate the attractions of Lehigh Gorge State Park, the first place would go to the waterfalls on a mountain stream named Glen Onoko Run. The trail to the falls starts from the Lehigh River, which flows into a stream, climbs a mountain, and passes through magnificently beautiful rhododendron forest.

Gulf Stream

Can one take a picture of an ocean stream? Unfortunately, it would be difficult to create the contours that would make the image clear. Nature has hidden many beautiful forces from us. Imagine how interesting it would be to be able to see wind blowing through a tree's leaves or sunlight enter through a window.

Fort Delaware State Park

At the mouth of the Delaware River, on the island of Pea Patch, there is a monument to the Civil War - Fort Delaware. The fort was built in 1815 to protect the cities of Philadelphia and Wilmington from a sea attack. The fort was controlled by the Department of Defense until 1945, when it was no longer needed to protect civilians. In 1951, the fort was created a state park.
