Field trip

Delineating wetlands just west of the Delaware Water Gap in the Poconos. Walking around on the last day of November in a single long-sleeve shirt and being sweaty is a very strange feeling. Waking up the next day to 70 deegree temps is even stranger. But I'm not complaining. As freaky as it is, I love it.

My co-worker Cathy for scale.

Oh,how gorgeous! And now that you referenced the Delaware Water Gap, I have a much better idea of where you are. I have spent some time in the Poconos around the Blakeslee area in the past week for work, and my boyfriend lives in New Jersey--near the Allamuchy State Forest--so we drove through the DWG on my first-ever visit to NJ about a month ago.

BF and I went for some hikes in the NJ woods while we were visiting. I was surprised at all of the rocks and outcroppings there... they add such a sense of history and ruggedness that you just don't find in the flat forests of Ohio.

You were just a stone's throw away from me! Beautiful photos of beautiful ledges and outcrops ...and usually they are covered with snow this time of year!

It is pretty down there. It must be nice to have a job that lets you get out like that.
Wasn't the weather unusual in November? We had our first snow this morning. Just enough to have to drag out the shovel. But, I guess it is time to settle down to winter!

I have driven through the Delaware Water Gap area a few times--the landscape is a humbling experience as your wonderful photos show us. It's so great how you get around in your job. And you were near Cyndy!
