The Beautiful Delaware Water Gap!

The Delaware Water Gap is a National Park at the eastern end of the Pocono Mountain range.   The park includes 27 miles of the Appalachian Trail.


We had a lovely day last Saturday (May 26, 2012) after the rain storms driving around the Delaware Water Gap.  This is one of my favorite day trips in our area.  It takes about 2 hours to get here, and the drive up the Delaware River is a variety of town and country and river life!

This time of year, everything is so green and lush.  We are so lucky!

Because of the rainstorms this afternoon, you can see fluffy clouds right in the valley with us today.

At this lookout, we met this adorable little girl who didn’t speak English, but her Dad said it was ok to take her photo.

My husband hiked down to take some video of the wonderful water fall for me.

We always recommend that you take the time to visit and appreciate the parks around you – township, county, state, and national!  They are our treasures, and are so healing for the mind and spirit!

    I always like to see some moving water especially with the rivers being mostly dry here in Spain. I miss the river kayaking I used to do on Sundays in Ireland.

      Appreciate the comment, David. Sorry that your rivers are dry. How upsetting!

    I agree. We have so much to see and do around us that I have no desire to get on a plane. Just ‘cos we can’t afford it at the moment either has nothing to do whatsoever to do with it. 🙂
