Morning #njnature hike to a lesser known #MorrisCounty open space. Nice rocky views of the New Jersey Highlands combined with some litter cleanup.

We parked on Miller Drive in Fayson Lakes and hiked in opposite the Green Acres sign post.

Taken on a warm spring day, a multitude of Painted Turtles were swimming to and fro near the Sportsmen Blind. Visit Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge’s Wildlife Observation Center on Long Hill Road in Gillette New Jersey.
