Perfect example of a #kettle #pothole #punchbowl a depression formed by retreating #glacier The kettles are formed as a result of blocks of ice left behind by retreating glaciers, which become surrounded by sediment deposited by meltwater streams. The ice melts leaving behind the depression. At #drewuniversity this was called the Punch Bowl #madison #nj #newjersey #morriscountynj — view on Instagram http://bit.ly/2JRdvBu

Iditarod #jersey style but no dogs. Talking about uphill both ways in the snow, this Klondike Derby sled was built by 7th-8th grade #boyscouts from Troop 242 sponsored by American Legion Post 242. Pulled by six-eight scouts over at Camp #Allamuchy which then was the Morris Sussex Council #BSA. The scouts would pull the sled to the campsite approximately two miles over hill over dale. Recently pulled out of the #joneshardware attic barn before demolition in #pomptonplains #pequannock #newjersey the sled now resides at the Pequannock #history #museum at the 1872 #railroad station. Putting modern dad-built or store-bought #pinewoodderby racers to shame. — view on Instagram http://bit.ly/30GBmsZ

I always personally admired this memorial. At the entrance to Sloan Park alongside the #pequannockriver in #bloomingdale #nj #newjersey marked as the work of JA Meliodon of #lincolnpark and placed in 1923. A fitting tribute to the brave doughboys who were sent to France in #ww1 — view on Instagram http://bit.ly/2K378du

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
