Appalachian Trail 2010

North of Lehigh Gap | AT Video of the Week

Once again I’m digging out some videos from the AT that I never uploaded. This one is of the area at Lehigh Gap in Palmerton where the superfund site is located from the decades of zinc smelting that polluted the mountain top. As you can see it is quite a different landscape that one would expect from hiking in the Green Tunnel.

You can read more about our antics in Pennsylvania here. The storm clouds show you what kind of climb and day it was—-wet. And hot.

This guy gives a good perspective on the climb out of the gap.
