Outside Our Window as the Rain Fell Lightly

 “Cedar Waxwings” in a feeding frenzy, are seen thru the glass of our kitchen window today. Their colorful wing tips are remarkable, and they love berries… in this case from our Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus Virginian.)

From the rainy New Jersey Shore – thanks for viewing, click-on or finger-stretch for a closer look and comments are always welcome. M 🙂

The Tower Above Oakland, New Jersey

 

Through the trees from our backyard, about 1.35 miles (2.17 km) to the west,  the “Oakland” tower is  seen a few minutes after sunset. 

In a slightly zoomed-in view, heading west and south along Rt 208/I 287, the tower is an easy mark on top of the mountain.
A short 3/4 mile (1.2 km) hike from Skyline Drive brought me to its base this afternoon, Tuesday 4/9/18

For fascinating historical information, please see Kevin Heffernan’s excellent article via this link,  here, 

As usual click to zoom in, and thanks for viewing. Comments are always welcomed. M 🙂

The breathtaking view of this morning’s pristine snowfall was beautifully captured by our neighbor just after the clouds cleared, and moments before it effectively disappeared with the warmth of the sun and accompanying breezes. 

My gratitude to Judy for allowing us to share her image as a guest contributor.

As usual,  thanks for viewing. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂
