Looking back at all the photos and videos of New York and New Jersey are wonderful shots, Richard. I never realized New Jersey had so many scenic areas. Most of us are driving through on the expressways and don't realize what New Jersey has to offer. Thank you for taking us on a journey through that area.

My photos from Friday at Lake Hopatcong New Jersey.
I change trains at Dover New Jersey.
After getting off the train I walk to the Lake Hopatcong depot.
A few minutes walk because the depot is above the tracks.
I am behind the depot looking down at the platform and tracks. Many decades ago there use to be stairs leading to the platforms. Today there are no stairs to the platforms. You would have to walk around and use a road to get to the platform. Yes platform since only one is in use.
Twenty five minutes later I am at the park.
Just over a mile from the train station.
Welcome center greets customers to the lake.
Beautiful Lake Hopatcong New Jersey.
People enjoying the comfortable weather.
A bit breezy at times.
Lake extends beyond those buildings in the background.
Would be fun to explore the lake by boat.
Few boats out on the lake.
Certainly tempting to go by boat.
For another time since I have to leave.
I head back to the train station as I leave the park.
Very nice, Richard. I wish I had more time on Friday to go visit Lake Hopatcong. It will have to be another trip, like Rita says, "...just because" so that we cam visit places. This trip was too jam packed. The Piscataway train shop was nice!
Thank you for the sights. It was a good day with a friend!
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
