The River Wild ...

“Roll forth, my song, like the rushing river.”
             ~ James Clarence Mangan
                  ~ 1803-1849 
The rushing winter rapids of the Lehigh River come to a beautiful crescendo on a January afternoon at Lehigh Gap along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, The Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the D&L Trail.

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Where The Peaceful Waters Flow ...



“Peace came as suddenly today as came the storm a day ago.
My soul was drenched in wind and rain, frozen in fear that fell like snow.
Then all was still.
Had someone prayed?
I do not know.”
                      ~ “After The Storm”

                                  ~ 1920-2007
The peace is palpable as cascading waters flow like silk down the Kittatinny Ridge on a beautiful spring afternoon. I shot this long exposure capture in late May at Lehigh Gap along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

Cotton Candy On The Kittatinny ...



“The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.”

The cotton candy, bubblegum pink of a winter sunset brushes the snow sugared Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, and reflects in the Lehigh River on a January evening along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap.

Mountain Moonshine ...



“We ran as if to meet the moon.”
              ~ Robert Frost
                       ~ 1874-1963
 The autumn moon seems to meet the mountain as it rises to shine over the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, along the Delaware and Lehigh Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap on a late November evening.
