Remembering ‘Pocono Pete’

In the fall of 1983, Mike Stevens hiked Camelback Mountain in Monroe County alongside a community icon named Esther Motts, who many knew as "Pocono Pete."

Motts passed away on Friday at 98 years old.

A celebration of her life is planned for this Friday, November 30, at the Bensing-Thomas Funeral Home in Stroudsburg.

We remember "Pocono Pete" in this trip Back Down The Pennsylvania Road.
