Bushkill Falls, First Friday in Bethlehem, and Coplay Fireworks
Today was a fun filled start to the Fourth of July weekend. It was a pleasant afternoon to visit Bushkill Falls in the Poconos. A slight drizzle kept the crowds away but wasn't heavy enough to make hiking too difficult.
Bushkill Falls is 100 feet high.

Later that evening I headed out to Bethlehem's First Friday. Highlights included Ryan Hulvat's Photo Documentary Project Launch. Ryan is teaching photojournalism and job skills to disadvantaged youth. Salma Arastu was also in town with a gallery showing and a new book.
Then, in the evening, I watched the Coplay Fireworks in my neighborhood. Coplay has one of the best local firework displays around, and it's a treat to be able to walk there.Coplay Fireworks 2009
