“The road is life.”
~ Jack Kerouac
~ “On The Road,”
Standing near the Lehigh Valley Zoo at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania offers a beautiful winter vista overlooking the historic Schlicher Covered Bridge in North Whitehall Township.
Game Preserve Road becomes a winding winter way through the bridge, painting a picturesque rural landscape on a March afternoon.
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.

“Kindness is like snow – it beautifies everything it covers.”
~ Kahlil Gibran
The banks of the Jordan Creek are draped in snow as sunlight sprinkles its sparkling beauty on the creek’s icy waters at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania on a January afternoon soon after the historic Blizzard of 2016.
In a winter shorn of snow until the blizzard, the storm plonked 31 inches of snow on nearby Allentown in a 24 hour period.
