Day 17: Poconos and Connecticut Beauty


time of year

Breakfast from the hotel to have for lunch later

Bagels, cheese omelettes and yogurts. Yum.

A quick at the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area Park Headquarters

We like to ask what the experts consider to be must see stops in the area.They still have an alert on their site saying Dingman’s Falls trail is closed for repairs but it was open when we went there later.

First stop: Dingman’s Falls, PA

1.4 mile total out and back, 249’ elevation. This attraction is a 2 for 1 with Silver Thread Falls right near the beginning of the walk. This trail is wheelchair friendly to the base of the Falls and 240 steps to the top observation area. A short dirt trail back to the parking area makes it a loop. I imagine the place gets packed during the summer but on a drizzly weekday morning we had it all to ourselves.


difficulty: 4

2nd stop: Raymondskills Falls, PA

The highest waterfall in PA. 0.4 mile loop trail 95’ elevation. Very popular in summer, we got lucky and had it all to ourselves. We ate lunch there before heading on.


difficulty: 3.5

Checked in for 2 nights at Milestone Inn

A very cute Motor Inn in Woodbury, CT. Lots of delicious food options within walking distance in an iconic New England setting. We are here at peak fall color and it brings the New England small town style to a whole new level of beautiful.


We’re here for a couple of days to see family

Tonight we had dinner at brother/in law – his own recipe for gnocchi made with home grown herbs and vegetables. It was delicious and I ate way too much!
