Journey to Calvary ...

“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’”
                   ~ Billy Graham
                          ~ 1918-2018
 A wooden Cross draped in purple for Lent stands outside Friedens United Church of Christ, Slatington, Pennsylvania on a March morning, reminding all who see it of the sacrifice Christ made for us.

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.

Whitetails In The Winter Mist ...

“I please myself with the graces of the winter scenery, and believe that we are as much touched by it as by the genial influences of summer.”
                      ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
                                ~ 1803-1882

Four beautiful white-tailed deer does show off their whitetails in the winter mist as a light rain falls in the late afternoon in the park.
