Tomorrow I’m heading into Delaware Water Gap to hike. Perhaps I’ll have pictures to post. There’s a Pennsylvania and New Jersey side of the Delaware River in Water Gap. I prefer the New Jersey side, where the Mt. Tammany trail affords beautiful views of the landscape at its summit. The Appalachian Trail cuts through Water Gap, which is basically a small village whose highlights include a backpacking supply shop, a bakery, and a diner.
[Update: at the end of my 9-mile jaunt, I was fortunate to see a small black bear scurry across the trail, cross the creek and scale a steep incline before plopping itself comfortably against a tree. All in all a great day.]
