That would be the Hudson River in New York state.  These pictures were taken in Poughkeepsie while enjoying the Walkway Over the Hudson experience.

According to the Department of Environmental Conservation:

‘The Hudson estuary stretches 153 miles from Troy to New York Harbor, nearly half the river’s 315 mile course between Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondacks and the Battery at the tip of Manhattan. The estuary feels the ocean’s tidal pulse all the way to Troy. Push a stick into the beach at the water’s edge, or note the water’s height on a piling or rock. Check back in 20 minutes. Is the water level the same? The estuary usually has two high and two low tides in twenty-four hours. With this rise and fall come changes in the direction of flow. In general, a rising tide is accompanied by a flood current flowing north towards Troy, a falling tide by an ebb current flowing seaward.’  You can read entire article by CLICKING HERE https://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/4923.html

Weekly Photo Challenge: Out of This World…

The prompt:  share a photo and make it look and feel like something out of this world. Feel free to interpret the theme as loosely as you see fit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Could this be a walkway used by astronauts to get to another world !  That’s what it always looked like to me, especially after I got done photo shopping it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental…

When I think of experimental I think back to my visit a few years ago to the Thomas Edison Historical Park in West Orange, New Jersey.

This is the chem lab..in 1887 this was one of the best equipped chemical labs in the world. Within its walls, Thomas Edison and his chemists experimented on everything from phonograph records to rubber.  “Grand science, chemistry,” Edison once said, “I like it best of all the sciences.”
