Treasured Towns and Landscapes of the Susquehanna

Jul 31, 2014 04:19PM ● By Shelly Cormack

The Susquehanna Greenway is a corridor of parks, trails and river communities along the Susquehanna River that are ripe for exploration by bike, boat or on foot. The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership asked people to share their cherished scenes of the Greenway and received over 300 entries in their 2nd Annual Treasured Towns and Landscapes of the Susquehanna Photo Contest. Here are some of the winning entries.

Landscape Category - 2nd Place: Holly Holdredge – A view of the North Branch of the Susquehanna River from Avery Mountain near Tunkhannock, PA

Wildlife Category - 1st Place: Paul Barrett - Every spring thousands of snow geese migrate through Lycoming County, often stopping traffic and nature lovers with their incredible flying formations and take-offs, as seen on this rural Pennsdale farm.

Flood Category - 1st Place & Grand Prize Winner: Chelsea Wagner. Chelsea was in awe of the power of water when she captured this scene. She described this stretch of Route 6, near Towanda, as looking like folded rubber or ribbons of licorice after swollen Sugar Creek rushed over the pavement.

Youth Category - 2nd Place: Morgan Sherwood, age 13. Morgan’s summer vacation involved canoeing the entire 444-mile length of the Susquehanna River with her family. One of her favorite stops along the way was in Millersburg, where she leaned about the historic ferry.
