“I started paddling with my friend, Danielle Foust, this past summer as an exciting new way to get exercise and for a safe activity during the pandemic. The second I was on a kayak, I found a new sense of freedom that I had not felt in a long time. We are currently working on completing the 444 miles of the Susquehanna River and hope to complete it within a year or two. We have over 160 miles paddled.”

A new website for the Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR) debuted in June, featuring more user-friendly features, additional categories, and more links to organizations with which the EMHR partners to fulfill its mission. As the webmaster does the fine tuning, there is one thing notably missing from www.emheritage.org: You.
EMHR administrators want the new website to be more reflective of what you see, do and enjoy about Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming counties. Where are the most spectacular vistas? Where are the coolest museums and other engaging venues? Where do you like to fish and hike? What is it about the Endless Mountains that draws you in or makes you want to stay?
Stories and photos of your experiences are needed for a blog page to be added to the new site early next year. Perhaps you enjoy cross country skiing, horseback riding, paddling our local waterways, or simply driving our country highways. And chances are that you’ve taken many great photos along the way. Every picture tells a story, of course, but your commentary will make it a better one.
These photos and comments were offered by Amanda Kovalick of Jenninsgville, who just began kayaking the Susquehanna River this past summer and now wants to become a member of our 444 Club. (Read about it here: https://www.emheritage.org/444-club/)
Email your stories and high resolution photos to email@example.com or send them via Facebook messenger to the Endless Mountains Heritage Region page. Please include the name of the site, the photographer, and any people in the photo, as well as contact information to ensure that you can be properly credited.
“Nov. 9 was another beautiful November day on the Susquehanna River with Danielle. We paddled from the public boat access in Laceyville to the Mehoopany bridge, getting out once in a while to check out old remains along the shoreline.”
“Of all the beautiful things to see, I never get sick of seeing bald eagles, and I love trying to get great shots of them.”
“Now, whenever I am traveling and I cross a bridge, I look at the water below and say, ‘Can we ’yak it?’ I’m addicted.”
