The warm up


Coming in on peak – this, the weekend before Columbus Day is the warm up.

We drove up to the top of Crawfords and back on Friday

A nice early fall sunset followed,

Saturday began with a quick trip down to the Pine Barrens,

The day is a little cloudy –
But it would clear up nicely – Picnic time?

I made us some dinner and off to Blackcap – even at 6PM there was only a single parking spot left. Popular place. We would descend by head lamp and find that only a single car, ours, remained in the gravel lot. True adventure style points were gained.


Here is a longer version of the drone shot from the house.

I went up to 500′ so I could peek over oak ridge and see Washington.

And last but not least – the big ass panorama – if you have the bandwidth


RDC 22 and more..


The quick slides from last week and part of this…


Blueberry Sky


Blueberry picking time – in the late July heat

We got up there early to beat the crazy heat.

Not much fruit on the bush so far. Picked about a pint.


July –



At Mittenstock the weekend after the 4th..

Dry weather – great temperatures and glorious sunsets.

Even without clouds – nailing the sunset shot this weekend.


We went up to rocky gorge and back from the C bridge.

I would say we came across more people than usual on this frequent walk of ours. But really for the most part you feel as you have it all for yourself.

It was so clear all day –

yet far from a plain sunset

DayIntoNight Tonight


I filmed this tonight. Pulled the sound track from my printable audio files..


Shot it on the Z5 w/ 28mm at 2.8

Then this show happened,

mic drop


Nuff said.



Two weeks ago, when we were here last, It was a little too chilly to hang on the deck – and the heat was on. Tonight it is almost too hot to hang on the deck and the AC is on.


Such undeserved fortune is this. This life I live. Tell me where to point my thanks.


Last day of April


We once more turned to Nanamocamuck for a river walk. This time all the way up to Rocky Gorge and back (seven miles).

On the way out of town


I pulled over to grab this classic perspective on the way out of town Sunday.

A couple of beaver lodges in the foreground, and the rock pile under significant snow up the valley. Classic spring MWV view.

Six weeks later


A return to Mittenstock, six weeks after here last –

Sunset, Friday night.

The weather was clear and warmish (low 50’s)

Friday night lights

Saturday would bring a walk, up Olivarian – a favorite of ours.
