No, it's not an oxymoron nor is it associated with a *censored* exit! Let's post up some of our favorite pictures of this beautifully diverse state. Show what we have for eye candy and give a little background about the pics you post. :)

Sure wish this picture was mine then I'd submit it for our banner. This is my daughter's shot of the Delaware Water Gap from the pull off at the top of the hill on Rt 611 just above Hope. In NJ fashion, there's a greenhouse in the picture ... The Garden State. 8-) The the left side of the Gap is Mt. Minsi in PA and Mt. Tammany to the right in NJ. Most of Mt. Tammany was my Boy Scout camp, Weygadt, in the sixties before the feds took it for the now defunct Tock's Island Dam(n) project.

If you catch this view at the right time, you'd see a house that Harrison Ford built on the right ridge before the Blue Mt. ridge. Big house with lots of glass and you'd only spot it when the sun hit the glass just right. I think he sold the house or at least it was for sale.

NJ is a beautiful state and truly deserves it's name of the garden state. It's a shame most people only see the urban areas or heavily developed shoreline and not some of the farms and other less developed areas. I lived in south Jersey myself for 10 years and would have no problems returning there. It's just too bad the tax situation has gotten out of hand in recent years.

Might be, found it on the 'net. If it is then it wouldn't be Sussex county.

I would hate to live in most areas of NJ, but there are some really nice areas here. Here are a couple from my area.

What? No oil refineries or chemical plants?? :P :D :D

I went on a nice ride to south central NJ to pick up my Harley from an Ebayer. I had no idea how nice it would get the farther away from NYC you go. 8-)

Yes, it's quite a scene on a clear full-moon light night. If you come from the NW like me, it's a drastic change. Going from my childhood Highlands area with 600-1,000 ft. hills to a raised coastal plain where a hill equaled 15 ft.was big change. Once you go south of the prehistoric Hudson River bed, it's an entirely different looking state. Took me quite a while to appreciate the beauty of it. The beauty is there and it's not just the stories of the NJ Devil that adds to it. :)
