enjoyed this post very much.  surprisingly we lived in nyc for a total of 25 years and never visited much of nj.  went upstate ny quite a bit and that is beautiful too. i live in pine country in nw florida now.  the pines are slash pine, they grow straight, tall, not much branching only at the tops, they grow quickly so it is good paper material and we have many paper mills close by.  that means that we have logging trucks all the time on the highway.

Gulp! I can hardly comprehend such areas of hidden wonder. Loved reading this.

Thank you for this piece.....and read every word!  Short attention spans are the death of the truth, IMHO.  Anyway, I would love to visit this area.  I grew up in an area of East Texas known as the Piney Woods and feel I can breathe best when surrounded by pine trees and all the wonderful things that come with them.

Very interesting! Somewhere in a dark corner of my mind the name 'Pine Barrens' was sitting, gathering dust, but I couldn't associate anything with it - now I can! It's well written, and though some people think it's a bit on the long side, like our Pat for example, don't let that bother you! I'm known for pieces that are long enough for people to take along on their vacations, since they don't find the time to read them in the course of their normal lives...

Thank you for the mention of John McPhee... He was one of my

journalism teacher's writing heroes, and I can get lost for hours in his stuff. You're no slouch, either. Even though your piece here is a bit long by Blogit standards, it reads quick. Nice work.

The Pine Barrens is impressive what I have heard and read...I remember the famous Sopranos episode of that name, my personal favorite episode of the show, in fact.

I just got back from checking out some of the things you listed at the bottom of this post.   A very beautiful place.  I love nature and wild places.

Nice travelogue Thank you. Sounds like a wonderful area and like everywhere now, we humans are so many that we are pushing further and further across the Worlds precious Parks.
