It was a beautiful day, with temperatures in the teens (Celsius). Bhavna and I decided to take a hike in one of our favourite places, the Sourland Mountain Preserve. Bhavna's sister and her family joined us as my nephews were excited to get outside. The parking area near the trailhead on East Mountain Avenue was packed with cars. It seems everyone in the area had a similar want for some outdoor activity. We hiked for almost 90 minutes taking the very rocky Ridge Trail straight up to Devil's Half Acre, a collection of large boulders, just perfect for two young boys to clamber around.
Amy Maranto went for a walk as well, capturing the scene long the rive in her hometown of Cambridge, UK.
