The View of Downtown Easton from Mt. Ida, a.k.a. Coca-Cola Mountain

Sometimes all it takes is a change in elevation to put things in perspective.

The weather has changed and it feels like spring. Yesterday was a perfect day for a hike. I didn’t have to leave downtown Easton for this one. Just headed down Rt. 611 and then up that big rock known as “Coca-Cola Mountain.” Its real name is Mt. Ida. I don’t know why. Does anyone know who Ida was?

 

In the next few months, I’ll be venturing out into the higher elevations more and more. Where is your favorite place to hike in the area? What is the most photogenic vista?

Try South Mountain, above Lehigh’s campus? There is a “lookout” and on a clear day, you can see north to the Blue Mountain range.

Cool! Thanks for your suggestion, Marco. I’ve heard about it there, but still haven’t gotten there. Putting it on my list right now. Thanks again!

How did you get up there? Did you walk the tracks by the hill or by 611?
