Mount Minsi, Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania
Today was a hot and humid day to climb Mount Minsi in the Delaware Water Gap. We kept to shaded trails and drank plenty of water, and the occasional breeze was a welcome treat!
We are in the midst of cicada season, and the woods sounded alive with buzzing and humming! We saw cicadas everywhere, a phenomenon not to be repeated for seventeen years.
A pretty pond covered in lilies..
The rhododendrons were just starting to bloom. Every once in a while we came upon a perfect blossom.
Our first overlook and glimpse of the Delaware River below.
The mountain laurel were beautiful this time of year.
