Seagulls At The Forks Of The Delaware ...


“The gull sees farthest who flies highest.”

One seagull sails in for a landing as the rest soak up the late winter sunshine on a March afternoon at the Forks of the Delaware, the confluence of the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers where Easton, Pennsylvania and Phillipsburg, New Jersey, meet. I shot this near Delaware Canal State Park, Easton near the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail). The Forks of the Delaware is where the Lehigh River merges into the Delaware River.

The trail is positioned between the Delaware River and Delaware Canal, which was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1978. The site possesses national significance in commemorating the history of the United States of America.

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