Hunterdon County Sourland Mountain Nature Preserve

For a change of scenery, Bhavna and I hiked the Sourland Mountain Nature Preserve trail just off Rileyville Road in Hopewell. We expected that the trail would be soggy but we were pleasantly surprised. The trail appeared relatively dry. We could hear the sound of frogs talking to each other from the vernal pools we could see along the trail. Halfway through the trail, the terrain became more rocky and swampy. At one point we lost track of the trail among the rocks. We backtracked and found our way back to the trail path but it was thick with mud and leaves.

Bhavna and I chatted and imagined that the trail would be more enjoyable once the rains have stopped and things have dried out. I think this might be a great trail to find Round-lobed Hepatica, Bloodroot, and rue anemone.

    I need to go on a little hike again...all we have here are 18th royal gardens. I like the images from the XF 27mm...I am waiting for the new weather resistant version. That would be ideal for hikes in inclement weather....

      I plan to purchase the XF27mmF2.8 R WR as well. If all goes well I may visit your neck of the woods in 2022. ?
