@Rockhead,
tayed at the BEekmantown once . It was ok but the food was outstanding. TODAY,chilluns, Im gonna continue up the Hidson with my glacial geo maps and look for glacial lake deposist, terminal moraines and scratch marks on bedrock. Then Ill headback S and look for differentiated deposits of the terminae of the Nebraskan,Illinoian,Kansan, and Wisconisn (As many stages of the Wisconsin as I can find in a morning). I guess tonight Ill stay at Matamoras Pa in the Poconos.
Interestingly, the hotels havent been super crowded by vacationers, economy or are kids still in schools?

Visited sevral glacial lake deposits on the Hudson today. Then I turned about and am back in Pa to look at several glacial deposits in the areas NW of Scranton. Im staying at a small motel near Tunkhannock Pa and am gonna get a nice prime rib at a local touristy stake house.

@ehBeth,
I was by the town of Shawangunk (SHAAN'-Gum) named for the suurounding mountains. I took some pics of a small set of glacial scrape marks and headed SW.
Whats in Kerhonkson? Did I miss some great food?

@farmerman,
Will be tripping to near the Towns of Forty Fort (where the Paxton Boy's leadership came to a quick end) to look at terminal moraines of the Illinois ,(maybe Kansan too)and the Wisconsin Glaciation, then to north of Easton to see other terminal moraines. MAybe do a little fishin in the upper Delaware reaches.

@farmerman,
Well, Ive ended my third of many field trips and have recorded several good locations where glacial episodes can be seen and well understood by the beginning student. Got really hot today and I saw two timber rattlesnakes on the higher outcrops and cobbly moraines.

This granite boulder in Lisle, Illinois had been pushed there from Canada by glaciers 14,000 years ago.
