Group DescriptionThis Group is for pictures taken in (and of) the Lehigh Valley. Located in Eastern Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley is the third most populated metropolitan area in the state.
From the Wikipedia article:
The Valley's official census area includes Pennsylvania's Lehigh and Northampton counties. The Valley is named for the Lehigh River, which runs through it. ... it comprises an actual valley that lies between two large Pennsylvania mountain ranges, Blue Mountain and Kittatinny Mountain to the north and South Mountain to the south.
Cities and location
The Lehigh Valley's principal cities are Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton, comprising the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton metropolitan area. The traditional bounds of the region are The Poconos to the north, the Delaware River to the east, the boundaries of Berks County and Montgomery County to the southwest, and the boundary with Bucks County to the south. More recently, however, the area around Phillipsburg, New Jersey west of Pohatcong Mountain, parts of upper Bucks County around Quakertown, and portions of northeastern Berks County and southwestern Carbon County in Pennsylvania are considered outer parts of the Valley.
