I went a spend a couple of days in New Jersey with a friend while travelling around America.
There was no set plan just go with the flow & see what happens. I love the outdoor so she suggested going for a drive into the Delaware Water Gap. No hesitation needed that’s what we did. Got up the next morning and headed off it was roughly a 1 Hr drive away.
The first stop was amazing, it was just under the bridge going in it was covered in autumn leaves, I loved it already. Couldn’t wait to see the rest. It’s enormous, there are so many places to see i would recommend way more than a day to rally enjoy it.
We stopped off at some of the walking trails & went down to the water. The peace was unbelievable.
We were lying at the side of a bank & i noticed a man across the water with a gun Alarm bells start ringing. Then out of nowhere these mean came behind with guns. I was shitting bricks even the sight of the guns made me sick. I said to the girls i think we need to go. It was like something you see in a movie 3 of us down at the water a good ten min walk back to the car uphill theses two come behind us one with a Riffle & one hand gun. “My fight or flight was hoping off the walls. There is absolutely no need for guns I don’t care what anybody says. I could even tell by looking at them they thought they were the big men with their guns. For me it was a highly disturbing situation.

We got the hell out of there & headed further into the park it was almost sunset. We came across some many beautiful areas. In one place the water was just flowing so gently but fast & the water was full of leaves so relaxing to watch. But one in particular really caught my eye. The picture of the men fishing it was just so peaceful the sun was setting over the water & they we just right in the middle of my shot. It was a lovely ending to the trip.
I would highly recommend when travelling look for places not on the list they offer the most beautiful areas.
