Another beautiful Northern Maryland site ripe for York countians to visit

Here’s a scene ripe for discovery – another appealing Northern Maryland scene. These falls in northern Maryland, not far from York County’s southern border, are located on Deer Creek. This area is known by Falling Creek, Falling Branch and Kilgore falls. These falls, where Disney film ‘Tuck Everlasting’ was filmed, might be unknown to many folks. Maryland Geological Survey’s website states: ‘Maryland’s second highest free-falling waterfall is located on the Falling Branch of Deer Creek in northern Harford County. The falls were well known to local native Americans and settlers, but in recent times the area was relatively unknown because the land was privately owned. Through the work of citizens groups, businesses, schools and government agencies the Falling Branch Area was added to Rocks State Park in 1993 and open to the public.’

Lancaster County’s Wind Cave emits coolness more intense than car’s air conditioning

York County has so much history and just interesting natural and man-made history that it’s easy to forget that western Lancaster County’s stories tie into those on the west bank of the Susquehanna River. Lancaster County has Chickie’s Rock natural area and a town – Columbia – filled with the Turkey Hill Experience, the National Clock and Watch Museum and other attractions. Shenk’s Ferry glen is full of wildflowers. And now we learn from York Sunday News guest columnist Patricia Crider about the Wind Cave near Pequea, south of Columbia. The cave, she explains, resulted from shifting in the earth’s tectonic plates.
