Happy Trails ...



“Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin’ until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, ‘till we meet again.

Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It’s the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here’s a happy one for you.

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin’ until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.

Happy trails to you, till me meet again.”
               “Happy Trails”

It’s a tale – or perhaps tail – of the trail as this cute little dog enjoys autumn along the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) riding on this man’s back as he pedals his bicycle through a beautiful October afternoon at Lehigh Gap.

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 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.

Running On Winter ...


“What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
               ~ Jack Kerouac
                     ~ 1922-1969
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.
