Winding Into Red ...

"Nothing behind me,
Everything ahead of me,
As is ever so on the road." 
                              ~ Jack Kerouac
                                                 ~ 1922-1969
                                            ~ "On The Road"
                                                                     ~ 1957 

Though shorn of snow, it's a chilly December day
as the country road winds through the historic Schlicher Covered Bridge,
North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania.

What lies ahead is the beautiful rural landscape at sunset ...
and endless possibilities.

Schlicher's is an historic wooden covered bridge. It is a 108-foot-long, Burr Truss bridge that crosses the Jordan Creek and was constructed in 1882. It has vertical plank siding and a gable roof. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, and was closed for a time for needed renovations.
