Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania: Raymondskill Falls

According to the story, the federal government at one time planned a dam for the Delaware River. The flood plane was projected to submerge much of the area where New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania meet, so houses and property were purchased. Then, the dam was never built.

And so the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area was created. Here's one of the highlights, a waterfall that is only four feet shorter than Niagara Falls. Of course, there's a lot less water going down it -- especially in a dry August -- but it's still pretty and worth a stop if you are in the area. It's just off Route 209, a few minutes from Milford.
