Fog on Kittatinny Point

Kittatinny Point represents, in my mind, the spirit of outdoor recreation. As a boy I longingly admired these mountains on the way to Poconos camping with my neighbors and their dad. This is the site where in the summers of P.C. (Pre-coronavirus), hundreds of outdoor enthusiasts congregate on kayaks, canoes, and tubes to ride the waters of the Delaware River.  Kittatinny Point is also a quick and scenic pulloff to stretch your legs if you are traveling to Pennsylvania on Interstate 80.

Waiting out a summer shower paid off well for me this time. This shot was taken about 70 minutes after my prior post here.

I had no more than 15 minutes to find my composition before the deluge began. The Walpack Valley is an incredibly tranquil and scenic area to myself and many others. It is a challenge to give such a place photographic justice.
