Libby is much farther away from the western shore

This past August, I posted views of the Susquehanna River replica Statue of Liberty from the eastern shore. Click here to see previous post.

A few days ago, I tried to take some shots from the western shore. The level of safety along the road on Routes 11/15 isn’t much better than the Interstates 22/322 side … but a girl has gotta’ do what a girl has gotta’ do! 

I am fairly disappointed in the outcome – Lady Liberty is perhaps even more obscured by vegetation on this side. Also, I should have tried to get there in the morning rather than the afternoon – because the shadows were already creeping up the side of the mountain when I arrived.

Nothing left but to hop in a canoe next summer and paddle over to see what Libby looks like up close and personal … stay tuned!

  1. […] Taking pictures of the statue creates a challenge. Since the redesign of the Dauphin-area stretch of Rts. 22/322, there is only a narrow and fairly dangerous breakdown lane on the side of the road — and a large amount of vegetation that obstructs the view. I’m going to take some additional photos later this year from the western shore (maybe adding a little “zing” to the view with autumn foliage?).  Update: click here for the west shore view! […]

  2. It is possible to get a better shot of the Statue of Liberty from the west shore, but it requires crossing 4 railroad tracks and hiking through some pretty deep underbrush.

    Still not a great shot though.

      Yep, I considered that; but with my luck I’d break my leg and be stuck down there forever 🙂

      I still want to try a canoe or kayak sometime to get a closer look 🙂
