Winter Afternoon ...

“Music comes from an icicle as it melts, to live again as spring water.”
                  ~ Henry Williamson
                     ~ 1895-1977
    ~English army officer, naturalist, 
                farmer & ruralist writer

Cascading waters frozen in harmony illuminate winter’s beauty along the snow sugared trail of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) that hugs the Kittatinny Ridge at Lehigh Gap on a January afternoon in this monochrome shot.

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 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.

Evening Falls ...

“Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.”
           ~ Desiderius Erasmus
                ~ 1466-1536
The waters of the Monocacy Creek spill into light as they cascade over the Monocacy Falls as evening falls in late November at Monocacy Park, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
