Light In October ...

“Knowing not grieving remembers a thousand savage and lonely streets.”
                ~ William Faulkner
               ~ 1867-1962
      ~ one of my favorite authors, Southern American author and Nobel Prize Laureate
                 ~ “Light In August”
                        ~ 1932
 I loved the way the late day October sun illuminates this small, lonely tree on a beautiful autumn day along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap.

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, 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 Delaware 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.

Snow Painted Boughs...

“Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.”

I shot this evergreen with snow painted boughs on the upper plateau of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania in mid-March, but it reminded me of the trees seen in Christmas Town in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, my most favorite of childhood Christmas specials ... and it still is!
