The Great Appalachian Valley

The Delaware Water Gap – on the NJ – PA Border – part of the Kittatinny  Range

The Great Appalachian Valley

I feel lucky to have grown up in a small Appalachian town – but to have had our media from New York City. This meant we had local small town influence, but we weren’t  bumpkins or hicks. I went to college in the middle of Pennsylvania – and Lock Haven was the same size as Newton – only 7000 or population at the time – and Lock Haven was saved from being a total hick town because it was a college town – with many coming from the Philadelphia suburbs (more than any other large city area).

One thing that I do feel is that anyone who grew up along this Great Valley has at least this in common. The mountains along this corridor might pale in comparison to the Rockies in Colorado, but they were still quite beautiful.

I always remember where I grew up in the Fall – when I know the colors are quite beautiful.
