As soon as I came across this scene I visualized a composition similar to the classic Death Valley imagery of Racetrack Playa.

Ashokan Rail Trail and View of Reservoir

Catskills Park, Ulster County NY

We parked in the Woodstock Dike Parking Lot so this view near the Boiceville Bridge Trailhead was at the fair end of the rail trail. There are scenic areas scattered the entirety of the rail trail.

Fog on Kittatinny Point

Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, New Jersey

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.
