Our Visit To High Point State Park In Northern New Jersey - November 20, 2007
Being that I'm a Coloradan, during my visit to
New Jersey I felt compelled to reach a high point
or summit of some kind. Thus, on a foggy day my friend Bernie and I
traveled to High Point State Park.
The highest point in New Jersey sits at an elevation of 1,803 feet
in the northernmost corner of the state.
The state park is located in the township of Wantage in Sussex County.
Like I said, it was an unusually dreary and foggy day which made
for some interesting photography.
There were autumn foliage colors. With the mix of snow and fog, the fall leaves
made for some nice photos. Adjacent are four semi-decent ones.
Lastly for those who might be researching New Jersey's high point
from a hiking standpoint, there is no need to hike or climb to the top.
One can practially reach the top by car.

There we were at the New Jersey high point!
There is a tall monument dedicated to those who have served in the U.S. military.
The tower was closed durin our visit, but at least we had the entire place to ourselves.
