Corey's North Eastern Photo Basket

The Follow Photos are from trips ive taken on Saturdays & Sundays. They are both Urban & Rural. The Saturday Trips are local , the Sunday Trips are long "loop" type trips. A loop trip is a route that goes in a large circle , i never go back on the same road and the return route. My thread will start off with yesterday's ,Massive "loop" trip in 3 states. I start in My town and head to Clifton for Lunch , then to my first Destination High Point Start Park , New Jersey in the Northwestern Corner of the state. You will also see some road pics of the routes between the destinations. I will try to explain each photo or at least give the Town, Population, & County.

We start off in Passaic County along New Jersey State Road 23 , in the town of
West Milford

Population Area 80.4 SQ Miles / 208.3 SQ km
27,839




The Charlotteburg Reservoir



One of the many small one lane railway underpasses under the Conrail Freight Line



The New Jersey SR 23 narrows before it enters Sussex County



The Sussex County Welcome Sign on SR 23



Skipping 17 miles down the road into the Small Colonial town of Sussex ,New Jersey, it may have the same name as the County but it is not the County Seat, the County Seat is Newton located 10 miles South.







New Jersey SR 23 ,then makes a sharp left & right avoiding the Historic Main Street.



Historic Buildings line the road



Clove Acres Lake in Sussex , New Jersey



More Houses in Sussex, New Jersey



5 Miles outside of Sussex in Rural North Western New Jersey



A house next to a Cemetery



A barn with a Silo Cell Phone top



Rolling Hills







A small Horse Farm in the New Jersey Highlands



The ascent to High Point State Park



The Entrance to High Point State Park in New Jersey



The High Point Monument



The Next set of Pictures were taking at the base of Monument, the Monument marks the Highest Location in the State of New Jersey @
1,803 feet or (550 m)

looking East towards Northern New Jersey & Southern New York State



Looking South East across the New Jersey Highlands









looking Northeast across The New Jersey Highlands & Southern New York State









looking South across the Park's Lake and Mountains





Looking Western down into the City of Port Jervis , New York









The Monument itself



The Park Map



Zoomed out view of the Monument



That concludes the First installment of my trip yesterday , next update tomorrow is the City of Port Jervis , NewBurgh - Beacon area , & the Hudson River Road.

I've lived in NJ for a few months during the winter and it was definitely cold and wet. I still have many relatives in the area of Edison and Union. Those trees must be nice during the summer months in all its green glory. Thanks for sharing.
