About the header image: January 2, 2013

A new year is a lot like Shakespeare's "undiscovered country," from Hamlet - and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. In Hamlet the undiscovered country from which no traveler has returned is "death," but Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country recast it as "the future." (Ironically, the guy who made that reference in the movie wound up dead just a few scenes later.)

Mike Burnside's picture of Route 118 near Ricketts Glen State Park is a lot like a new year: the view in the distance is shrouded in fog, with looming shapes and oncoming dangers.  It's gloomy and spooky. But there's a bright red sign for a hotel. Maybe we should just check in there until the fog burns off and it's safe to drive again!

So now we've entered into a new year. What does 2013 have in store for NEPA Blogs? If you submit your photos to you can help to set the look for the NEPA Blogs header a week a a time!
