“A beauty lights the fading year …”
~ Phebe A. Holder
~ “A Song of October”
in The Queries Magazine, October 1890
Autumn reflects its beauty in the Lehigh Canal on an early November afternoon 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.
The Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, can be seen in the distance and reflected in the water.
Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

“... 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
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.
