I think these pics of Solomon Creek in Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County, PA - taken on 05 July 2013 - more than adequately document our dismal performance as caretakers of the environment and the aftermath of the wanton exploitation of our natural resources ( coal ) in Pennsylvania.
As a youth, I fished the headwaters of this creek for many years. It was loaded with beautiful native brook trout. That can't be said for the same creek once it leaves the mountains and enters the Wyoming Valley.
I hope everyone is enjoying the long 4th of July weekend. I will be back in a few with some pics and comments from my three day stay in the Wyoming Valley, including some rare photos from within one of the oldest structures still standing.
My Q? of the Day: Is it haunted?
