Resort Point

Uploaded by: lousyfocus

Monday November 7, 2011

Delaware Water Gap Borough, Monroe County, PA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Resort Point Overlook has been so named because, in the early 1900s, there were many huge, luxurious hotels on the west- (Pennsylvania-) side of this gap in the Kittatinny Ridge where the Delaware River flows through it. A variety of circumstances have caused these resorts to no longer be on the hillside...but a picture on a postcard shown in the *comments* section, below, provides evidence of one of the largest of these classy retreats.

Looks like a gorgeous area, Kim, and you found some color still clinging to the trees. Wow, that WAS a grand hotel in it's heyday. It's a shame none of them survived through the years. Thx for the info.

About lousyfocus

lousyfocus

SWDM; 60+; 2 grown daughters; 3 indoor cats. Have had only 4 addresses ever - all of which have been within 25 mi. of each other in NE PA, where civilization has become too noticeable. Productivity at this end suffered a setback quite awhile ago, but picture-taking is an attempt to hopefully show that it has at least partially been restored - with some titles and/or captions intending to increase the "fun" of the process. Comments of support have made life immeasurably better. It is hugely attractive that this site provides so many well-done glimpses of the world. My oldest WunderPhotos which understandably weren't anybody's favorites - and thousands of other pics - can no longer be seen by clicking on "Visit My Website" next to this bio. The site (Webshots) has been restructured, resulting in the undoing of many, many hours of effort. "My WunderBlogs" might have provided pleasing viewing...but photos there, too, have been wiped out by the restructuring; and it's unknown if/when the photos will ever be re-uploaded to the blogs. The WunderBlog space is much appreciated and I wish that I could add to it - and upload to WunderPhotos - more often...but realizing that sites can make any change that pleases them has cooled me to the cyber-world.
