Bridging Sunset ...


"Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we
pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses,
which paint the world their own hue, and each shows
us only what lies in its own focus."
                                  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 
                                                            ~1803-1882

Sunset hues begin to steal across the summer sky
over Easton, Pennsylvania as viewed from across
the Delaware River in Phillipsburg, New Jersey next to the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge.

The bridge that spans the states was completed
in 1896 and survived damage from massive flooding from Hurricane Diane in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990.
