These pictures show some of the wildlife and people seen along the river on these glorious summer days.
I participated in a river cleanup at the northern reaches of the park and that is beautiful and calm! We put in on the west branch of the Delaware and took out about 5 miles downstream on the PA side at an access called Buckingham. The river was low and calm and the accesses were perfect for my fiberglass kayak. I just may bring my kayak with me next year if I can get people interested in doing it with me! I still can't go upstream in this river so I can't put in and take out at the same place.
I looked up into the trees one day, as I usually do in case an eagle is around, when I saw something hanging from a tall pine tree. Turns out it was an Eastern screech owl that had hanged itself because it was caught up in fishing line! It took some ingenuity and grit to get it down and I wasn't there when it happened. Kevin climbed a tall ladder and reached out with a long pole with a torch at the end of it to cut the line and drop the owl. Shannon wants to skin and stuff it!!
I have been saying that I don't need to come back next year because I finally got a clear shot of an edult eagle, but there is always room for improvement! So, I guess I will come back for another year!
