13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Amber Waves of Grain

This photo was taken near Buttermilk Falls, NJ in the Delaware Water Gap National Forest. Hiking the trails at Buttermilk Falls is rewarding and the surrounding area is beautiful. The natural golden grain field glowed in the early evening sunlight and reminded me of the song, "America The Beautiful!" Hiking instead of driving reduces CO2 emissions and is eco friendly. The natural environment and wildlife is intact because of the balance of clean water, healthy vegetation and clean air. I believe this is supports a sustainable travel project.
