While visiting family of Thanksgiving it's almost mandatory to visit the Shikellamy State Park Marina for post-meal miler. They have tons of parking, river views, and a paved fairly flat trail that runs a mile around the island. Max squeals with delight the moment we pull into the entrance drive for he loves to walk here.
Packer Island splits the east branch of the Susquehanna River at the junction where the west branch unites. The impressive water way virtually doubles it's width at this point. Water and surrounding scenes are one of my favorite photo subjects, so the marina area offers unlimited potential.
