NJ: Great Day For a Ride

Today started out clear and dry...about 40 at dawn, climbing up to almost 60 just after noon. Got an early start to scout out a campsite for me and my grandson, and wound up at the monument at High Point State Park.

Below: A nice view of the monument at High Point soon after entering the park. New Jersey's "High Point" is 1803 feet above sea level. The monument, a memorial to all New Jerseyans killed in all wars, adds another 220 feet to the elevation. It was built in 1930 as a result of a gift of a private citizen.



Below: North-West view from the monument: New Jersey in the foreground, the Delaware River in the center, New York and the town of Port Jervis to the right of the river, and Pennsylvania and the town of Matamoras to the left of the river. Those riders who participated in the recent NJ/NY/PA Meetup headed towards the top-center of this view to reach Hawk's Nest and Barryville. Sorry I missed that ride.



Below: The monument: I think I climbed to the top of it when I was much younger; no one is allowed to go inside now.



Nature provided a great riding day today, and Aunt Bea wasn't around in her metallic brown Dodge Dart looking for a motorcycle to crush.

There won't be many as good again until Spring.

This post makes me wish I was out riding instead of being stuck at the office...
