Tripod Rock is a glacial erratic. These rocks were brought here and came to rest after the glacial retreat. As they retreated what we now know as the #pequannock valley was glacial lake #passaic which slowly drained. To this day it continues to drain actually from its remnants in the #greatswamp and even the #meadowlands – This rock is approximately 841’ over sea level and it is impossible to fathom the glaciers advancing this far south and to this height in #nj #newjersey #pyramidmountain #njhiking #hiking the importance of the glaciers to the topography of the state is typically unheralded. The glacial melt discharge left behind the flatter, sandier land of #southjersey giving birth to the #pinebarrens #boonton #montville #morriscounty #northjersey — view on Instagram http://bit.ly/2VL8UY7

The rolling hills of #northjersey #njhighlands as #i287 curves to the east of federal hill in #bloomingdale #nj the site of the #pompton mutiny during the #americanrevolution – more notorious history is associated from a 1930s German bund that had an encampment on the hill where pro-Nazi memorabilia was found. I’ve always wanted to hike to the ruins of the bund and to the summit of the hill to see the views of the #pequannock valley from that direction. #nj #hiking – this is the year I will do it. — view on Instagram http://bit.ly/2Hox161

First reformed church on the #newark #pompton turnpike in #pomptonplains #nj #newjersey #morriscounty on a beautiful crisp May morning. This church is relatively historic, but it is also known for having burned to the ground in 1937. Local resident, Carl Edward’s, had the presence of mind to film the event.

Memorial park in #wharton #nj #newjersey this #ww2 memorial is on the other side of the park from the ww1 memorial. I particularly liked the backdrop of the relatively large grand home behind the park. The park has a 37mm antitank gun which are very common surplus weapons seen in many towns. One reason is because the 37mm really was not effective against German armor in WW2. They made a bunch, they were marginally useful and the result is they were readily available as surplus memorial props. — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2xLwGF1

While it has a #dover mailing address, St. Mary’s Church is actually situated in #wharton #nj this gothic church was designed in 1873 by noted architect Jeremiah O'Rourke built of locally mined rough-cut stone. The building features an open timber roof and jewel-toned stained glass. Early parishioners included many immigrants to #newjersey who toiled in the nearby iron mines. — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2N9pY0I

Historically, #nj industrial development was rooted in iron. The iron industry declined in the latter half of the 19th century. Still the rivers were able to power mills and diversification brought a major influx of silk mills to the area. This brick silk mill was built by Ross and Baker around 1907 on the former site of the Washington Forge in #wharton #newjersey — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2Iq820U

Today many area town museums are open to the public, all on the same day. Visiting the #pequannock township museum in #pomptonplains #nj #newjersey I noted the Beames Dairy sign. Interestingly one can note the ‘Grade A’ scratched out of the sign. Done because he no longer sold Grade A milk. Of course that does make me wonder what Grade ‘B’ milk is. — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2pvANRp
