“Want to spend forever with me, Winnie?”
If you know anything about Tuck Everlasting, it is probably this line. If you know more than that awkwardly delivered line from the ill-advised movie adaption, then we should probably be best friends. (Serious on both counts. The movie was pretty bad and I’d be happy to be your new friend…)
The other thing to know about Tuck Everlasting (that is actually relevant to this post) is that they filmed parts of the movie in Rocks State Park in Pylesville, MD. Since learning this bit of movie trivia, I have always imagined a dreamy Kilgore Falls photo shoot there in the waters below the falls drawing from the childlike magic and whimsy that the book always evokes for me. Lucky for me, Sarah also had similar ideas.
Although not a Tuck fan specifically, Sarah had her own dreams of a fairy-tale/woodland goddess meets Ophelia type shoot that involved lots of, you guessed it, water. Our visions plus a homemade flower crown and second hand dress led to a photo shoot made in storybook heaven.
If you are looking to have your own Kilgore Falls photo shoot, be forewarned that the parking lot is on the smaller side and once the spots are all taken, the park is considered at capacity. (Which, in my experience, is enforced by a ranger sitting at the trailhead in a lawn chair.) We arrived right as the gates opened at 8 AM and the lot quickly tarted to fill. By the time we left around 10 AM, the lot was at capacity.
