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
