An old stone wall, used to delineate properties and reminiscent of property boundaries in Britain and France, sits in Brandywine Creek State Park in Chateau Country.

Matt, I was just looking at your latest photos and reviewing random earlier pages back to the beginning of this thread. Your photos of Delaware have brought me so much pleasure, especially as I've found I've completely fallen in love with this small, wonderful state over the course of the 26 months I've lived here.

Thanks for the kind words! Sometimes it gets tough to keep going, and sometimes I wonder if people pay attention. I'm glad to know that I've helped you see what Delaware is like, and have gotten you to like the state like I have gotten to like it.

A friend of mine visiting from England was very impressed with the beauty of the area around the reservoir and the depth of the green of the woods in summer. I've get to drive around there today to see the Fall colours.

Nice. The woods are nice around here, but I've never thought of them as very diverse or interesting. I like the mountains of Pennsylvania and New York more. The foliage at Hoopes is pretty nice, though. Peak colors are right now, you better get up there soon.

By the way, in relation to your comment from a couple days ago, I bet that you would like my OTHER THREAD on Delaware. What's nice about that thread is that I can go with themes, unlike this thread, which I like to keep random (and at least try to cover different parts of the state at a certain time). Some of the pictures you have seen already, but some are new. For instance, I bet you'll like the part about the peach mansions in the lower part of the county.

Arguably the most haunted location in Delaware is Fort Delaware, on Pea Patch Island. The Civil War fort has recently gotten national attention from ghost hunters after appearing on television a couple of times.
