 This high point was achieved while Homeyra and I were on our honeymoon in the Pocono's.  We spent two nights at Caesars Palace resort.  Fun filled with the classic heart shaped Jacuzzis!  Day one of the honeymoon Homeyra injured her hamstring while attempting to waterski, so it made all other activities we had planned like horse back riding impossible.  Fortunately New Jersey High Point was only thirty minutes away and a drive up, so it didn't matter that she was on crutches.  We drove to the top and examined the monument and the marvelous views, difficult to see everything because it was very hazy and a afternoon approaching.  Delaware Water Gap is nearby and a big tourist area.  We were also able to see one nearby Duncan Falls, the only handicap accessible falls in the area.
