“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens
With the Delaware River to the left and the Delaware Canal to the right, walking the snowy trail along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) on a day filled with spring’s warmth in the waning days of winter paints a beautiful scene on an early March afternoon.
I captured this image after starting out from the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead at Delaware Canal State Park, Easton, Pennsylvania.
The trail is positioned between the Delaware River and Delaware Canal, which was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1978. The site possesses national significance in commemorating the history of the United States of America.
Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

“Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens
~ 1812-1870The spring melt is on at Geiger’s Covered Bridge as the late March sun melts the snow off the roof a few days after a snowstorm on the first full day of spring March 21 brought more than a foot of snow to the region.
Geiger’s Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a 112-foot-long Burr Truss bridge, constructed in 1860. It has vertical plank siding and an entry portal of stepped square planks. It crosses the Jordan Creek and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It can be accessed from The Covered Bridge Trail of the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
