Fall 2010 – Leica X1 in Washington Crossing State Park

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Washington Crossing State Park is located in Mercer and Hunterdon Counties in New Jersey.  I took a detour to this park while coming back from a conference. As usual, I had the Leica X1 with me and here a few pictures for you to enjoy. The park is of historical significance – “On December 25, 1776, the icy waters of the Delaware River provided the setting for one of the pivotal events of the American Revolution. The Continental Army had little to celebrate that Christmas and seemed beat by hunger and cold. After crossing the rough winter river at night, General George Washington and the Continental Army landed at Johnson’s Ferry, at the site now known as Washington Crossing State Park. At 4 am, they began their march to Trenton where they defeated the Hessian troops in an unexpected attack. This battle was quickly followed by the Second Battle of Trenton on January 2, 1777, and the Battle of Princeton on January 3, 1777.” [from the official park website – http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/washcros.html
