Allamuchy Mountain State Park – Photographing a Vista from Highlands Trail


Allamuchy Mountain State Park – Photographing a Vista from Highlands Trail

My route:
Waterloo Rd (park at Sussex Branch lot)
White Trail to White/Orange Trail to Teal (Highlands) Trail

Park here –

Really nice view of the Musconetcong River. Landscape photos to follow.

I doubled back after reaching the vista. This hike is not a beginners hike, wear sturdy footwear, bring lots of water and a snack. Have a fully charged phone w/ internet acess for maps, ideally bring a battery backup for your phone (I did).

Taken earlier this week. I local and younger Kinnelon hiker was heading up for the view just after I arrived. We had a friendly discourse of the pros and cons of social media after he snapped a shot of me taking this shot.

I was at the right place and right time for dramatic weather at the local hawkwatch. I’ve photographed from this vista dozens of times but have never observed such defined clouds. A seemingly ethereal light struck the foreground as sunlight permeated the sky.
