Once Upon The Long Ago ...


"Some days in late August at home are like this,
the air thin and eager like this,
with something in it sad and nostalgic and familiar..."

                                  ~ William Faulkner
                                           "The Sound and The Fury"
                                                                            1929

of the Lehigh Valley on a summer evening from one
of the beautiful summits at Trexler Nature Preserve,

How Green Is My Valley ...


"How green was my valley then ...
and the valley of them that have gone."

                                        ~ "How Green Was My Valley"
                                                       ~ Richard Llewellyn
                                                                                1939

The Lehigh Valley is wrapped in the lush  green
of summer in this view from one of the beautiful
