Adams Falls, Autumn, Pennsylvania

(Click image to enlarge)

This photograph shows the first 20 foot (6.1 meter) drop of Adam's Falls. The water travels through a narrow chute that accelerates it to incredible speeds, especially when the water volume is high. This has caused it to carve out a beautiful pool in the rocks. From that pool Adams Falls drops another 10 feet into a much larger pool through two separate chutes. Due to the angles involved it is not possible to see them and the upper part of the waterfall simultaneously.
