When my future son in law first visited us in the Pocono Mountains he did not have his now world famous beard. His beard has absolutely nothing to do with this picture. We took him and my daughter to Grey Towers in Milford Pennsylvania. The famous house of Gifford Pinchot.
There had been heavy rain the night before and I took this picture of tree reflections in a small pond. I didn’t realize Owen was even in the picture. My recent image, Upside Down in Mexico has caused me to revisit old pictures of reflections. This one takes on a surrealistic feel when turned upside down and cropped.
Autumn is a great time of year at Grey Towers in Milford Pennsylvania. On October 27 they have a cemetery walk and readings of Edgar Allen Poe inside the old mansion. Milford also hosts the Black Bear Film Festival in October from October 18 through October 20 so this is a great time of year to visit the mountains and see great Autumn views and some wonderful offbeat films.
Grey Towers was the summer home of Gifford Pinchot. Among other things Pinchot was the first Chief of the United States Forest Service from 1905 until his firing in 1910, and was the 28th Governor of Pennsylvania. The splendid grounds and views from Grey Towers are free to the public but there is a small charge for a tour of the interior of the mansion. It is in Milford Pennsylvania and beautiful and a tribute to his work in environmental conservation. See more scenic views and buy prints at my commercial site.
