Aerial Photos October 18, 2011 - I was flying from Denver to Newark and during our final approach, I pulled
out the camera to snap pictures ...
That's the Delaware River. In this particular region it's sometimes
referred to as the Delaware Water Gap. We were still on the Pennsylvania side
of the river and Interstate 80 can be seen going along the farther side of the river.
Budd Lake, New Jersey.
New Jersey is not a wide state at all. I became distracted for a few minutes, when suddenly I looked out and we were already over the city of Paterson! If you're acquainted with the Paterson,
the downtown area, Garrett Mountain
and the Passaic River are identifiable.
Then I noticed this cemetery in the southeast corner of Paterson.
I looked down with sorrow, as my father
is buried there. I visited him the next day.
On the way out of Newark a week later, I captured two shots. Above is the township of Fairfield, NJ. This is my hometown!
Flying over Lake Hopatcong in Morris County. Do you remember the amusement park at Bertrand Island?
It closed in 1984, but the island obviously is still there. It is the spoon shaped piece of land
that reaches into the middle of the lake.
