Field of gold – July 2017

It is easy to take for granted the amazing landscapes that the area I live in affords. Much of what I see during my short hikes would be jaw dropping to lifetime city dwellers. I need to keep reminding myself of that.

Sunset, Scott Township, PA – August 2017

Earlier last week Eliza and I went to an invite-only wine release tasting event. Posh, I know. But we had a great time and look forward to doing it again. The sunset was lovely that evening – as it has been most of July as afternoon thunderstorms make way for calm colorful evenings.

Not a dinosaur egg – July 2017

You have to wonder, though, what amount of water moving at what speed over what duration would it take to make this stone look like this? I’m no geologist but I’d say a lot, fast, and a fair amount of time geologically speaking.

Weeds – July 2017

Summertime hikes offer a completely different experience to early spring hikes. Most of this grass was only a few inches high in early spring, about a foot or so in June, and in this photo in late-July it is at least 3-feet high.

Central Railroad of Pennsylvania and New Jersey Freight Station, Lackawanna Avenue, Scranton, PA – July 2017

I captured this one on a recent afternoon constitutional. I hate seeing buildings like this waste away to nothing.

9th Ave Pier, Belmar, New Jersey – July 2017

Earlier this month Eliza and I ate dinner at 9th Ave Pier in Belmar, New Jersey. It was an interesting experience. At 9th Ave Pier you find a seat yourself (despite the fact that the place was packed). This could be done by creating your own tables using objects you find around the pier, finding a few seats with other people at unfilled tables, or finding a way to sit at the bar by cozying up next to someone at one of the few bars.

It didn’t make for a bad experience necessarily, but I can imagine how some might be put off by this. And, it may be that this isn’t an issue except during holiday weekends when the place is busier than usual.

Overall it was a beautiful evening and I won’t forget our dinner there.

Franklin Court, Scranton, PA – July 2017

I hastily snapped this walking back to my car from July’s NEPA JS after-gathering at Ale Mary’s.

White Oak Pond – July 2017 (click to zoom)

On Saturday I drove passed White Oak pond to check on its status. You might remember this post as to why it has been drained. Compare the above photo with October 2015.
