Word on Main Street in White Haven is that since the polling place has been moved to the White Haven Library, outta sight outta mind, so let’s go biking in the Poconos!
Voting vs. Biking in the Poconos this fall foliage season is a no brainer! This fall foliage season has been some of the best weather all year! With the Indian Summer coming a little early and giving us this awesome weather we currently have, according to weather.com it is forecasted to continue through next week!
Voting requires research, decision making and a high expectation emotional investment. It creates community division, arguments, divorce and ultimately voter failure as the rich are getting richer and the poor well they are still poor.
With trails for every ability, unlike voting the whole family can go biking in the poconos! The Jim Thorpe to White Haven, PA Poconos area is a great place to skip your “public duty to vote” and GO BIKING! Jim Thorpe and the surrounding areas of Carbon County, Pennsylvania are well-known as a Mecca for mountain biking to see the amazing fall foliage. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or expert you’ll find your trail here and see the wonderful spectacle of the fall season. Biking in the Poconos is way more fun than voting!
This week’s Pocono Bike Rental Fall Foliage Blog report is once again summarized with information compiled from: The PA DCNR 2015 Fall Foliage Report, The Foliage Network Northeast Region Report for the week of October 29, 2015 and the Pocono Mountains Visitor’s Bureau Fall Foliage Report.
Nothing signals the advent of autumn in Pennsylvania like the changing color of the state’s landscape, when entire forests transform into glittering displays of reds, yellows and purples. This week brought some warm temperatures with cold nights and then a chunk of hurricane influenced rain gave us some added winds that forced some leave spillage and now the trail has an ample amount of color to ride alongside. Lots of color still exists on the trees and the more south you go towards Jim Thorpe the large Poconos Fall Foliage color palette is still vibrantly on display.
The other signal of fall, unfortunately is the 1,000’s of Political signs dotting the highways. The dichotomy of it all makes more sense as we begin to reflect on the cranial archive of the famous motivational speeches that veiled the corrupt political agendas. No empty promises biking in the crisp fall air, you know you are alive and you know what’s real and what is smoke and mirrors.
For more fun,take a journey back in time the way folks used to travel long distances post invention of the steam engine.
