Back when I first moved to Delaware, I discovered White Clay Creek Preserve (now State Park). It was my way to escape campus and Newark, and it was where I cleared my mind and contemplated the complex world. My mountain bike and Pentax K1000 were my best friends.
Fast forward almost 20 years.
Needing to get out and enjoy Delaware a bit, as well as to get a little exercise, I bought a park pass this year and have been hiking like a mad man. I’ve explored most of White Clay Creek State Park and related natural areas as well as Brandywine Creek State Park which is closer to home for me now.
I’ll dig the bike out in a few weeks and do some mountain biking. My Canon Digital Rebel is my best friend while hiking, because I’m still obsessive about capturing life, perhaps as a way of holding on to it?
