A ride to the Golden Era of the Poconos

With some warm weather finally coming our way here in the north east, I finally gathered up footage from one of our last rides last year. My wife and I got off the bike to hike into the woods back to the 1800s to visit the remains of two grand hotels slowly vanishing over time.

wife and I honeymooned back in 76 at one of the resorts now just something resembling dodge city...a few years ago we were in the area and revisited where we stayed...needless to say the place was out of business and surprised buildings were still up...we found our unit but decided against going back to the past with what went on in that unit...do believe there still may be a few still in business...

I love the smell of honeysuckle while summer riding in the stretch by The Kittatinny Hotel site.

Thank you for putting the effort into these videos Joe.

That was very interesting to watch! Thanks for sharing. I love the old post cards. The sheer scale of these old buildings is humbling.
