“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
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.
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.
