    Today was a beautiful sunny day so my wife and I stopped by Frelinghuysen Arboretum to welcome the beginning of spring and the end of winter. Anytime of the year is a good time to take pictures, especially if it gets you outside for the fresh air.

    I visited the Morristown National Historical Park and Washington Headquarters and Museum in May 2022. Ranger Tom and Ranger Kim were very helpful and knowledgeable. I watched a 15-minute film on the winter of 1779-1780 in Morristown, NJ. Most people know about Valley Forge and the winter that General George Washington and his soldiers spent in 1777-1778 but the winter of 1779-1780 was even more severe and difficult. The museum is excellent and also does a good job of covering the timeline for the entire American Revolutionary War and the key battles. The events before and after the winter of 1779-1780 in Morristown help to put everything in perspective. There is a special exhibit on documents and a nice bookstore and gift shop. If you are interested in history, this is a very worthwhile museum.

    Lonataka in the winter offers some of our northern feathered friends a place to rest and feed when the ice in the pond starts to thaw. Next time you are in the park check out what’s around the pond.

    Hilly hiking, a nice swimming lake, many picnic areas, some mountain cycling in a near to Morristown package. But it's part of the County Park System that boasts all very good to excellent sites and suffers some from the lack of vistas.

    Such a rewarding hike. We did the George Boulder loop starting across the Columbia trail parking. It’s a shaded hike, moderate difficulty and a full loop of about 3.1 miles. The trails were well marked and easy to follow. It was great to find restrooms and picnic area half way through. We stopped at the middle and enjoyed ourselves old fashioned blanket picnic by the lake before we walked down and found the therapeutic waterfall with pool. It was not too crowded. A perfect picnic trail spot . We took our time and completed this trail at leisure and still took us about 3 hrs , without stops it must take about 1hr 40 min .

    Also watch out for north eastern water snake 🐍

    Macculloch Hall Museum and Gardens is a wonderful gem in the heart of Historic Morristown. The home has an interesting history dating back to 1810. It is fascinating to learn about the history of the Macculloch/Miller families, their friends, visitors and impact on NJ life. The house is furnished with wonderful items, including some of the quality worthy of a major museum. Tours are given by volunteer docents or by the staff. All are knowledgeable about the house, gardens and its history. There are excellent educational programs on offer. In the summer a librarian from the Morristown Library comes over one Wednesday's at noon to read a book to a delighted audience of little ones and their parents/caregivers. If you are looking for a place to have some quiet reflection, take a stroll or enjoy a lovely garden MCH is just the spot.

    This lovely local park in historic Morristown consists of a large pond, playground, and a baseball field at the far end of the park across from Burnham pool. Along the park’s paved path are plenty of benches to enjoy the view of the pond and fresh air. On the Washington street side of the park is a large bronze statue of Thomas Paine, and farther down the path is a war memorial listing all the military actions of the United States of America to document the human sacrifices made by her people. There are parking spaces for the park along Burnham Parkway.

    During the Revolutionary War this park area and pond used to be a field that was used by the Continental Army as pasture for artillery horses.
