I spent the morning browsing at the Campmor retail store in Paramus, New Jersey. In the afternoon I hurried out to the New Jersey high point and got there just before they closed the monument which sits atop it in New Jersey's High Point State Park. This is a surprisingly pretty area for a state which is so densly populated. It was especially beautiful on this particular day since there was still a lot of fall color in the trees. On the way home I stopped and had a very cozy dinner in the artsy little community of Milford, Pennsylvania.

If you plan to do the New Jersey highpoint you might want to combine your visit with some hiking in the nearby Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. I explored it on a later weekend. Don't expect a wilderness experience. The trails are enjoyable but unfortunately never too far from civilization.
