"Over the Hills and Far Away"

At nearly 700 feet elevation, we not only overlook the western end of the Lehigh Valley, but can see across the Schuylkill Valley, to Eagle Peak, beyond Newmanstown and beyond that to Furnace Ridge, the divide between Lancaster and Lebanon Counties: a distance of well over 40 miles ( 70 kilometers). Not bad for Pennsylvania.

"Over the Hills and Far Away"? I thought that was your favorite pipe tune!

Not my favorite, but the tune most requested by people hearing a piper play. :-)
