Harrisburg

This is the view from our apartment in Harrisburg. We live right across the street from Riverfront Park and the Susquehanna River. The Susquehanna has to be one of the most beautiful rivers to flow through a major city anywhere in the world. With all its islands and the slow current, it has more the feel of a lake than a river. It is a shallow river and in the summer it is filled with flat-bottomed pontoon boats, lazily cruising in and out of the islands, sometimes docking on one. There is a whole subculture to the pontoon boat people. They have figured out treasure of Harrisburg--the Susquehanna!

The park is a great place to laze around on a blanket, play frisbee, run, rollerblade or walk....Completely accessible. Any day of the year you can find people here .

Us on a blanket, in the grass, at the base of a tree in Riverfront Park. The park really is a great place that, in my opinion, is under-utilized. But that's ok, we utilize it.

View North, up the Susquehanna River

It is even hard for me to believe, looking at this photo of the river, that I am standing in a city while taking this picture.
