Jersey Shore

After dinner I wanted to see the waves at Beach Haven Heights, Long Beach Township, New Jersey by the Edwin B Forsyth NWR. The sun was setting as we crossed Dorland J Henderson Memorial Bridge. The last photograph was made at a rest stop on the way home. 8 of 8 posts.

Plants in the Pine Barrens

I like to try to identify wildflowers. I use iNaturalist and the internet. The red maples are seeding and from a distance it looks like the trees have red flowers. 5 of 8 posts.
