Spring is almost here and the temperatures, though inconsistent, are rising. We had a couple 70-degree days this week, followed by a 20-degree drop. It’s all fairly typical for March in New Jersey.Delaware_Water_Gap

The weather is reaching a point that will soon see me drive out to my favorite home-state destination: The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. As part of the National Parks system, it offers a great escape from the city–a quiet river, peaceful hiking trails, and few people. It’s not the most popular of national parks, but it’s still worth visiting.

Every time I go to the Delaware Water Gap, I take along someone different. I don’t think I’ve been there with the same person twice, and this year probably won’t be any different.
