Fire in Worthington State Forest in Delaware Water Gap

I heard about the fire and called ranger Dan on Friday. He was helpful and assured me that "everything will be open by the end of the day." . Must have been a pretty good fire. We went up there today, Satuday, and there were lots of people enjoying a beautiful day. It smelled a little smoky down near Rt. 80, but that could have been the campfires. Hikes around Blue Mt. Lake, where we saw quite a few swimmers, and over to Hemlock Pond. Unhappily saw a large number of dead hemlocks, but also some viable trees. And Indian Rocks overlook was it's usual amazing self!
