Life Before Fracking

Before the natural gas boom brought fracking, the Pennsylvania wilderness had a life of its own.

We followed a rickety hand-drawn map scrawled by my 82-year-old grandmother: Pass the shattered-window filling station, the oddly-shaped Kissing Rock sitting in the sharp road bend; go over the creek on a small wooden bridge that may or may not be there, depending on whether the water had washed it out in the spring.
