Mountain Moonshine ...



“We ran as if to meet the moon.”
              ~ Robert Frost
                       ~ 1874-1963
 The autumn moon seems to meet the mountain as it rises to shine over the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, along the Delaware and Lehigh Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap on a late November evening.

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.

Autumn Moonrise ...



“... I wanna go and bounce the moon
Just like a toy balloon…

You make me feel so young
You make me feel there are songs to be sung
And bells to be rung
And a wonderful fling to be flung …”

           ~ “You Make Me Feel So Young”
     ~ 1946 popular song composed by
         Josef Myrow, lyrics by Mack Gordon
         ~ recorded by the wonderful Frank Sinatra
                              ~ 1956
 The rising moon of a beautiful mid-November evening indeed looks the size of a toy balloon you could bounce over the Central Range of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
