Went to visit the park, around 3pm after spending many hours at ‘Steamtown‘. There was thunderstorms in the forecast and the weather did not look promising. So, I was hoping we could take refuge in the Everhart Museum which is inside the Park. It is closed on Wednesdays! That was disappointing.

But, we decided to explore until the rains came. Though it always looked imminent, it did not rain. So, we lucked out.

Nay Aug‘ is an Indian name and means ‘noisy brook’ — the brook is sure is that.

The Tree House was cute. I hiked the Gorge. You can see that in the GPS track. It was fun and scenic. I had fun. Got to see a train. That was a bonus.

The rose garden was quite impressive too, though it was past its peak.

Definitely recommend it. I wish we weren’t always keeping an eye on the rain. I would love to go back. Nice place Scranton — Joe Biden’s birthplace.

The Garmin SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) APP — The Data You Get.

This was the very first time I have used the Garmin SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) APP.

I am pretty impressed and pleased with the data it provides. Basically, it emulates what you get with the RUN, WALK or HIKE APPs.

Do not get hung up on my actual data. I am 65-years old, recovering from major knee surgery and just got back into SUP after a 3-year hiatus. Plus, I was never a strong or great paddler. I just do it for the fun. We live close to a lake and we have beach rights. So, I try to get out on the water.

I am using an Atoll 11′ stand up paddle board (iSUP). I have only had it since Saturday. This was my 3rd ride with that board. I have and use a Garmin MARQ Expedition.

MARQ Expedition

The GPS tracking from my Garmin MARQ Expedition — which does have SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) APP. I used it for the first time today — on my third ride on this new board.

I am really getting to like, admire and trust the Atoll 11′ stand up paddle board (iSUP) I have only had it since Saturday.

Today was the first day I was not battling a strong wind. The lake was calm and it was fun. The board tracks strong and can move.
