Photo A Day Challenge: Fence…

I like fences and the only difficult thing about this post was trying to limit the number of photos, not sure how well I did on that :). Here are a variety of fences from Martha’s Vineyard – Plymouth, MA – Cape May, NJ – Milford, PA.

 

One of the most touching fences to me is fire hydrant fence in the Newark Firemens section of the Mt Pleasant Cemetery in Newark, NJ where my great-great grandfather is buried.

The Top of New Jersey…

HIGH POINT STATE PARK,  which is the highest point in  New Jersey is located in Montague in Sussex County. At 1,803 feet above sea level it is the highest peak of the Kittatinny Mountains.  At the peak of the highest point is the 220 ft High Point Monument– from the top you can see New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

There are 291 stairs to the top. I climbed them on my first visit to the monument in Sept, 1972.. I snapped this picture because I knew I’d never do it again. The monument isn’t open for the season yet so I didn’t have to find out if I would or not.. I like to think I would have tried.

View from the top Sept 1972.   Same view now but from base of monument.

 There are also hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and a lake.

As the name of my blog implies yes, I am obsessed with Martha’s Vineyard… but I am also proud of my home state of New Jersey.

(There may have been some liberties taken with a few of the photographs… can you guess which ones?)  🙂

Photo A Day Challenge: Looking Down…

The one below is looking down from almost next to last row in the top of the theatre when we went to see ‘Phantom of the Opera’ several months ago in NYC.  We were really looking down.
