Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park

Paterson, NJ is known for the first planned industrial city and was centered around the Great Falls of the Passaic River.  IMG_20180708_143839IMG_20180708_143216IMG_20180708_143203IMG_20180708_143616IMG_20180708_143557IMG_20180708_144201

This is fragrant sumac and it’s not poisonous.IMG_20180708_143744IMG_20180709_012742

After visiting the falls area, we went to have lunch at a park nearby called Garret Mountain Reservation.  We drove around for a while until we found a place to park since it was pretty crowded.  We lucked out because we found a great spot sitting on a rock overlooking Paterson and a great view of New York City !!!  20180708_15311120180708_153103

We took a more scenic route home to stop at another area in Pennsylvania called Raymondskill Falls.  We have been here many times before and wanted to stop by for a hike.  We passed a cute place selling flowers for $1.50 each, so we went back and I picked up some marigolds and amaranth.IMG_20180708_172316IMG_20180708_175731IMG_20180708_175815IMG_20180708_180317IMG_20180709_085535

“Let us decide on the route that we wish to take to pass our life, and attempt to sow that route with flowers.”- Madame du Chatelet
