• Ricketts Glen offers some of the most fascinating landscapes to photograph not only in Pennsylvania but in the entire U.S-East Coast. With more than 20 waterfalls and countless creeks,  the photo opportunities at Ricketts Glen are endless. Hike frozen trails, explore dozens of natural icy waterfalls and discover spectacular ice formations as you hike through spectacular frozen ravines of the majestic Ricketts Glen State Park in Northeast Pennsylvania. 

    The frozen landscape creates glistening ice formations and an awe-inspiring experience unmatched in both the Endless  & Pocono Mountains Regions.

    This trip transports you to a frozen-in-time winter waterfall wonderland. Or guide service supplies the crampons, ice axe, harness + helmet. The guides set hand-lines to clip you into at certain sections of the trail as we hike on an ice-packed narrow trail system—it is an incredible experience!

    As with all my tours/workshops, Ricketts Glen is designed to accommodate beginner, intermediate and experienced photographers looking for one-on-one instruction and/or the opportunity to expand their portfolios. Our group will have a maxium of six participants, one guide and me!
