Kevin Kaltenbaugh’s fine photography is showcased on Gateway Lodge’s PA Wilds Artisan Gallery Wall through October. Kevin’s keen eye for the stillness and awe of the ancient growth forest is captured beautifully in this year’s show. Scenic views from all seasons are showcased, and new canvas prints are now available. All are encouraged to stop in to view. Prints are available for for purchase.

Gateway Lodge is a trail stop along the PA Artisan Trail. The PA Wilds Artisan Trail was created in 2006 to help increase the visibility and profitability of the many skilled artisans living in the Pennsylvania Wilds region. The program involves branding high-quality, handmade goods with the “Proudly Made in the Pennsylvania Wilds” brand; and helping get these products to market through an Artisan Trail and an online presence. The program ties into a larger effort to grow nature and heritage tourism in the region.
