Lunch at the Delaware Water Gap

After we enjoyed our time in the Poconos, we drove back home via the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area on the Pennsylvania side.

We traversed much of the area, leaving more to be explored next time. Our main stop was for le petit déjeuner along side a river. Since we forgot to stop at the information center, I’m not actually sure just what this branch is called… but I can only assume it is one of many creeks, rivers, and other waterways which feed the Delaware River.

There are several pictures to share from our luncheon, so I’ll just start your weekend with these two: the first image is somewhat the perspective we had when we first spotted the river from the road. Naturally, we were very excited to find a convenient place to park and munch and enjoy the water's voice.

The trees you see give you an idea of our setting. The river was lined with trees, rhododendrons, and shrubs, and the water was deliciously cold. After lunch, we just had to take turns soaking our feet in its sweet coolness!

Remember that today is the last day to make comments which will count towards Arboreality’s First Birthday donation to the American Forests Global ReLeaf effort.
Have a great weekend everyone!
