Dirk's Rambles

July 18, 2021 Delaware Water Gap and New Jersey

Rate this Entry
Today we crossed the Delaware River and walked into New Jersey.

We stayed last night in the Church of the Mountains Hostel. It was extremely hot inside and also extremely crowded. We got a bed luckily. All of the beds ended up being taken and there were many other people sleeping on the couches and on the floor. Had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and crawled over many bodies in the dark to reach it.

Was so glad to leave PA. Much of the northern part of PA is extremely rocky, with both boulder hopping and many stones on edge pointed skyward. Difficult! And slow to traverse. However I hear NJ and NY are just as bad.
