Clearer Day  Sucess!

Summited first time Fathers Day 1993. Foggy day so missed out on the views. Much clearer day this time around - a nice visit for sure however it was crowded

Highpoint #1  Sucess!

I grew up in New Jersey and don't know the date we visited the park and climbed the tower. I think I need to go back and get an official picture.

First of Fifty  Sucess!

First state high point attempted. Headed up there with Gramps and both of our cameras in tow. Great weather and off the mountain in time for breakfast at the diner just south of the park.

A great weekend  Sucess!

The start of a great weekend… summited New Jersey on a cool spring day… then off to Franklin NJ for the Super Dig at the Sterling Hill Mine (very cool fluorescent minerals). A nice little jog to the top and some great views from the obelisk at the top.

1st E. Coast HP  Sucess!

Started at Deckertown Turnpike (hwy 650) and hiked the AT to the turn off the the HP, took that to the monument and back, and then took the other loop (red?) from the visiter's center back to the start, 15.1 miles total.

#6  Sucess!

We visited first thing on the morning after Tropical Storm Andrea had passed through the night before. We had the park to ourselves except for the birds and little furry creatures that were stirred on such a beautiful, fresh morning. This is a special place and we are so happy to have visited it. Our best HP experience yet.

#19  Sucess!

Took a couple mile hike up the south part of the AT. Not a bad little hike.

App Trail again!  Sucess!

We decided to hike the 1.5 mile section on the A.T. from the small parking area south of the park office. Also, this way we could save the $20 from driving into the park. It was our seventh state we've had to use a portion of the Appalachian Trail for highpointing purposes. Also, how insanely gaudy was the actual monument at Jersey's HP! Whoa, it looked like the Washington Monument. It was neat being able to see it miles in the distance though...............for us, STATE HP #19!

Better than expected  Sucess!

I wasn't sure what to expect but got a decent workout between the hike up and the obelisk stairs in pretty good heat. Inadvertently scaled a rock face leading to the summit when I lost the trail. Well done, NJ.
