Still Gold ...



“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
                                    ~ Jim Bishop
                                    ~ 1907-1987
                        ~ American journalist, author &
                              New Jersey native

It’s still gold as the peaceful beauty of an early November afternoon paints itself in a reflection in the Lehigh Canal along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail), Weissport, Pennsylvania, where the trail is positioned between the Lehigh River and Lehigh Canal.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delware Rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.
