Saturday Night Lights ...

"When I admire the wonders of a sunset
or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands
in the worship of the creator."
                                                       ~ Mahatma Gandhi
                                                                           ~ 1869-1948

A stunning  summer sunset echoes and shimmers on a Saturday evening across
Leaser Lake in the shadow of the northern Blue Mountain Ridge,
New Tripoli, Pennsylvania.

The lake's namesake is Frederick Leaser, who in September 1777
with his farm team hauled The Liberty Bell from Philadelphia
to Allentown where it was concealed in Zion Reformed Church.

His homestead is located one mile north of the lake.
