My first memories of any river are of crossing the bridge over the Little Schuylkill at New Ringgold. Throughout all stages of my life, I frequently travel within the scenic Schuylkill River Greenways region from Tamaqua and Pottsville to Philadelphia. I also spend many pleasant hours biking sections of the Schuylkill River Trail.")
