We spent the day driving through The Delaware Water Gap National Park. It is on the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania where the Delaware River cuts through a large ridge of the Appalachian Mountains. A water gap is a geological feature where a river cuts through a mountain ridge. The park is a recreation area for rafting, canoeing, swimming, fishing, and rock climbing.

It is along both sides of the Delaware River. Since the river is the state line between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we decided to drive up the Pennsylvania side, cross over and down the New Jersey side. The roads were narrow and winding. A few times we were afraid we would end up on a dead end back in the woods. There were a lot of intersections with very few signs. We expected to see canyons with great views. We checked out a beach and a made a couple stops along the river. It turned out to be a drive through a beautiful river valley. It was a 40 mile adventure.

We are enjoying the weather... 72 degrees with no humidity. Wonder how long that will last??
