"I saw old autumn in
the misty morn
stand, shadowless like silence,
listening to silence."
~ Thomas Hood
There is something so very special about the early morning, the
serenity, the quiet beauty. This feeling of a fresh new day is palpable
as the mist rises just after sunrise on a beautiful, chilly October
morning at Wehr's Dam, Orefield, Pennsylvania.
The historic dam, awash with the waters of the Jordan Creek, was built in 1904
and is the perfect complement next to Wehr's Covered Bridge, built in 1841.
