Harold took a shot of the Rivergeek with the City of Easton in background.

Harold Deal floats downstream with camera in hand as I look upstream at the bridges of Easton-Phillipsburg. Note the flood debris caught under the railroad bridge, some 30 feet above the water.

et Harold Deal at Riegelsville and we shuttled up to Phillipsburg NJ for a ten mile run through the Highlands section of the river. Passed many limestone tributary rivers and creeks along the way including the Lehigh River, Lopatcong Creek, Pohatcong Creek, Musconetcong River, and Frys Run.

Except for a few shore fishermen, we had the river to ourselves. Well, not really, as there were numerous wood duck, hundreds of Canada Geese (mostly migrants and a few nesting pairs), common mergansers, black duck, unidentified migrating diving ducks, and kingfishers.

It was balm for the soul.
