Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania

Every American school child hears about George Washington's dramatic crossing of the Delaware River in the middle of winter during the Revolutionary War. What is probably not so well known is that the site is a lovely park area along the river bank with a museum and other historic buildings. This photo shows the absolute contrast between the Pennsylvania countryside and my own state of Arizona. I can safely say that there is no place in the state of Arizona where a photo like this could have been taken.

  1. Thanks for the memory. We lived near Washington Crossing in the 1980s. Wonderful, historical place to raise a family. I still miss the smell of lilacs in the spring, and the changing colors in fall.
