Not much in Dingman other than the falls.  Now they have a stairway (240
steps) up to the top to view down as well as a wooden path to see it from
ground level.  Way to restricted for my taste, but nice to see anyways.
Bonnie, I am very diverse.  I do just about anything.  I like to see things in
natural settings, appreciate craft/arts too.  I like history also.  I also can
spend a day shopping looking at unique things.  In my younger years, I was a
backpacker.  Now I enjoy the comforts of a hotel room at night.

Dingman's Falls? What a small world.

When I was a camper, and then a counselor at a Y camp, we used to go to
Dingman's all of the time. There was nothing there - just primitive camping
(no campground, no outhouse, just meadow and woods)  and the falls.

I still have the scar on my leg from one adventure. When I was a junior
counselor, I was showing the kids how, when climbing the falls, you must
always watch where you put your hands because of snakes. Just as I was about
to put my hand on a ledge, I spotted the rattlesnake sunning itself, whipped
my hand back, and fell about 15 feet.

What's there now? I don't suppose that they let anyone climb the falls
anymore. That was in the 60's.

If you can arrange to see Chanticleer while you're in the Longwood area, it's
well worth it.
