This is an interesting place to take a walk alone when it is getting late in the day…..it is still light out, but I wonder for how much longer. Lee has a lot on his mind.
There might be a couple new “No Swimming” signs…
That last panel is gorgeous. Incidentally, Raymondskill Falls are right across the river from Stokes State Forest. When I was a (lonely gay) teenager I wandered round there after school or work. It made my parents insane–this was around 2003 too and I didn’t have a cell phone. It’s true it isn’t the cleverest place to be walking in the evening…
(I don’t think I ever mentioned how funny I found it when I discovered Prince of Cats: ten years ago I was a poor redheaded queer teen in the Water Gap area. Although I was in the closet growing up there, my wife is Asian-American and visiting my parents is indeed always an adventure. When I was a teenager I even jumped/fell badly off the path in Allamuchy Mt park and concussed my dumb self on a streambed. I really do love this comic in and of itself, though. It’s beautiful and true, and so poignant it breaks my heart.)
So they live in Delaware. Good to know. Explains the New-England-but-not-quite-New-England-in-the-middle-of-nowhere vibe I get from the setting of Prince of Cats.
Jsyk: The story takes place in Pennsylvania. The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is an area of land on the Delaware River in PA and NJ.
Oh snap. PENNSYLVANIA. You know, that name is kinda confusing, seeing as how it’s on the Delaware RIVER, not in Delaware….no one else finds that confusing? Okay.
Thanks for clearing things up, Kori!
