Summer Supper ...



“A forest bird never wants a cage.”
                 ~ Henrik Ibsen
                        ~ 1828-1906

A male American goldfinch - also known as a wild canary - and a female house finch share a birdfeeder as they enjoy a summer supper on a beautiful August evening at Lehigh Gap Nature Center.

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 Delaware and Lehigh Heritage Corridor (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.

Summer Swan ...



“Happiness, not in another place but this place … not for another hour, but this hour.”
                        ~ Walt Whitman
                               ~ 1819-1892

A beautiful mute swan glides on the water as sunset knocks on the door of a sweet summer evening along the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania, perhaps reflecting on the beauty of this sunkissed moment.
