This loon is a study of intricate patterning as it spreads its wings next to my kayak on Walker Lake in Shohola, PA in early May. Its red eyes stand out even though it was cloudy with intermittent rain.

Loons: just passing through

One May afternoon, I happened to be working in the yard when I thought I heard the mournful call of a loon. I was almost done with my work, and when I was finished, I headed down to Walker Lake with a pair of binoculars to see if I could find what had made that noise.

Looking Back

Earth Day 2019 is April 22. Whether you plan to participate in a community-wide litter pluck or simply implement using a reusable water bottle in place of a plastic one, it is a day to honor and celebrate the environment.

The sunrise breaking through the stark leafless forest. A perfect morning for quiet meditation.

A walk in the woods

It’s spring! Well, it’s practically summer, but nobody around here seems to trust the groundhog anymore. Either way, the punch line—it’s getting warmer. With warmer weather comes the urge to break the winter blues, get out and enjoy the fresh air.

The McDade Recreational Trail ranges through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and features gravel pathways for hiking and bicycling, views of the Delaware River, farm fields and forests.

A trail to try

Spring has finally sprung, beckoning us outside with its beguiling charms. Taking to a trail is a wonderful way to connect with what’s happening as temperatures climb and daylight lengthens. One interesting option to consider is the long and winding McDade Recreational Trail in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

Narrowsburg News

Spring is making itself known throughout Narrowsburg, although the first sprouts are usually eaten by a starving deer after winter’s long fast. While it’s nice to see a crocus, I’m more excited to see Main Street thaw.

Outdoor spring cleaning

Maintaining an organized, squeaky clean home and property can be a challenge, especially in winter. Cold weather keeps us from venturing into the yard, basement, or garage, allowing dirt, grime and clutter to pile up.
