Climb That Mountain ...



“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that … mountain.”
                       ~ Jack Kerouac
                            ~ 1922-1969
While walking on the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap on a late May evening, I looked across the Lehigh River and spotted this man hiking along the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain.

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, 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.

Winter At The Ford ...



“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”

Winter’s quiet beauty paints a simple elegance in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured during a January sunset at the Ford of the Jordan Creek, one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Running On Winter ...


“What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”

Spring is just around the corner and winter is waning, but there is still snow on the ground from a mid-March blizzard as runners dash up a hill at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
