Pocono Mountain Air is like Drinking Fresh Cold Lemonade!

Several summers, I spent teaching arts and crafts at a children's camp in the Pocono Mountains.  At the time, I had a motorcycle and I loved driving all the back roads; especially at sundown.  I never forgot the fresh smell of the wooded air and the sounds of the birds and other animals rambling through the woods. While in the Poconos, I discovered I loved kayaking; and had great fun floating down the Delaware River in the summer sun.  Last week I spent a few days there reconnecting with nature, it was great!
If you ever complained about how hard your job is you really need to take the coal mining tour in Scranton PA.  It was the most humbling experience of my life. I wish every school age child could understand how difficult it was to be a coal miner.
