|Delaware Water Gap Winter Visit
The January and early February of 2007 had been cold and long. On Feb.17th the temperature finally was going to
climb up to upper thirties, I just got to go to see the icy waterfall in Delaware Water Gap. The entrance to Dingman
Falls was blocked off. However the Factory Falls and Fulmer Falls is still accessible. Going down from the parking lot
to Dingmans Creek, I was struck by the peace and quiet brought about by the blanket of snow. The creek was
flowing around the sparkling ice banks. Its sound seemed to be softer but crispier. There were many surprises to be
shared with you.
