A collection of 10 videos, with descriptions, from some of the places that I like to go and photograph.
Corwin Farm Historic Site is in Sullivan County New York and part of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River. It is a canal era farmstead and National Park Service ranger station.
The Zane Grey boat launch is in Pike County PA in an area known as Two River Junction. The Lackawaxen River runs into the Delaware River here and the Roebling Bridge (Delaware Aqueduct) is just down river. It is all part of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River and it's one of my favorite places for underwater photography and videography.
Some wild little critters that make their living on the surface of the Delaware River.
Shohola Falls is part of the Shohola Marsh Reservoir in the State Game Lands Number 180. I have to get around the back of the marsh more in the spring of 2020 to see the waterfowl. I photographed the Tiny Forests Blog in a parking lot here.
The PA description says: State Game Land (SGL) 180 is made‐up of one single tract of land, 11,492.81 acres. Located in the Pennsylvania Game Commission's (PGC) Northeast Region. It comprises portions of Blooming Grove, Shohola, Dingman and Lackawaxen Townships in Pike County. SGL 180 is situated North and South of State Route 6 and Interstate 84, north of SR 739 and east of SR 434 north of SR 6.
With the exception of steep slopes located near the Shohola gorge, topography mainly consists of rounded hills and broad to narrow valleys. Swamps and peat bogs are widespread throughout the game land. Elevations range from 960 to 1,470 feet. State Game Land 180 is very typical of the oak forest types within the Appalachian Plateau.
This Game Land has a wide range of tree species including red oak, white oak, and chestnut oak being the most dominant. There are a wide range of other hardwoods and softwoods from black oak, scarlet oak, white pine, and eastern hemlock. Approximately 765 acres are comprised of wetlands, which fluctuate in size depending on the presence of beavers and their stage of activity. Shohola Lake waterfowl impoundment consists of approximately 909 acres.
The incredibly beautiful and rather windy High Point State Park
Per Wikipedia: The land for High Point State Park, donated by Colonel Anthony R. and Susie Dryden Kuser, was dedicated as a park in 1923. The monument was built to honor war veterans, through the generosity of the Kusers. Construction began in 1928 and completed in 1930. At the top of the 220 feet (67 m) structure (the base is 34 square feet (3.2 m2), observers have views of the ridges of the Pocono Mountains toward the west, the Catskill Mountains to the north and the Wallkill River Valley in the southeast.
In the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River is Ten Mile River and it's gloriously old Tusten Stone Arch Bridge. The bridge - According to Wikipedia: It was built in 1896 and has two round arches. It measures 51.1 feet in length and 15 feet wide. It crosses the Ten Mile River near that river's junction with the Delaware River.
It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
It is located within the Ten Mile River Boy Scout Reservation, which in turn is owned by the Boy Scout Councils of Greater New York
