Until Next Summer ...



“I’ll remember you
Long after this endless summer has gone
I’ll be lonely oh so lonely
Living only to remember you …

To your arms someday I’ll return to stay
Till then I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Oooh, you’ll remember too
I’ll remember you.”
                            “I’ll Remember You”
                   ~ written by Kui Lee, 1964
   ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley, 1966

A trail running through the State Game Lands to Bake Oven Knob, Germansville, Pennsylvania is spun into a summer memory as my most favorite of seasons shows off the last of its sun-dappled beauty on a mid-September afternoon.

Trail Sugar ...



“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.”
                   ~ John Muir
                           ~ 1838-1914

Sunset is knocking on the door of a winter day on a serene, snow sugared stretch of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) close to the Slatington Trailhead in Slatington, Pennsylvania.

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

Slatington, established in 1864, is the designated Blackboard Capital of America.

Lush Summer ...




“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all ...”

                        ~ Jack Kerouac
                                 ~ 1922-1969

All seasons have their own special beauty, yet I have to say I’ve always been a summer person.
And what more could anyone who loves summer ask for than a quintessential summer evening – verdant, lush and warm – just before sunset on the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania.

It’s the perfect, sun-dappled place for dreaming and remembrance … a place that seems to paintbrush the words of Jack Kerouac, “I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all …”
