Vacation 2011 | Part 1 | Pennsylvania Grand Canyon

Some people go to the real grand canyon for vacation, this girl goes to the grand canyon of her motherland...pennsylvania! One day when this whole being broke thing wears off we can visit that big gorge out west, but until then, this one holds a special place in my heart. It is about 20mins from where I went to undergrad and I totally didn't appreciate it enough when I was living there.


A little fyi courtesty of wikipedia: 
Pine Creek Gorge, also known as, The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania,[1] is situated in approximately 160,000 acres (650 km²) of the Tioga State Forest in the U.S. State of Pennsylvania along Pine Creek. The Canyon begins south of Ansonia, near Wellsboro, along U.S. Route 6 and continues for approximately 47 miles (76 km) south. The maximum depth of the canyon is 1,450 feet (442 m) at Waterville, near the southern end. At Leonard Harrison and Colton Point State Parks, the depth is more than 800 feet (240 m) and the distance from rim to rim is approximately 4,000 feet (1200 m).
