VIDEO: Experience the serene frozen landscape and waterfalls of Ricketts Glen

It’s easy to appreciate Pennsylvania scenery in the spring, summer, and fall, but winter is often overlooked due to the inevitable drop in temperatures.

That didn’t stop photographer and videographer Zach Heaton from traversing through Ricketts Glen State Park in Benton to take photos and video of the frozen landscape, however. The park stretches across 13,050 acres in Luzerne, Sullivan, and Columbia counties, so there’s plenty to see, such as the 22 named waterfalls, including Ganoga Falls, the highest at 94 feet.

The video shows weathered rock faces, fallen timber, and icy waterfalls frozen in place, all covered over by a blanket of snow as calming electronic music plays over the trip.

Based in Atglen, Heaton runs Above the World Films and takes time-lapse and aerial photos and videos across the country.
