Treking in the Pines lands

It started with a search for some country cooking at Lucilles luncheonette in the center of the Pine Lands, Warrensgrove and then to do a trek to Pygmy Pine Plains for a Sunset photo shoot, sometimes it just feels good to be alone in the pines.
Lucilles was closed, darn, but I did get some nice sunsets photographs in a very different and special place, some of the plants here live only here and no other place on this planet.

The Pgymy Pine Plains (or Dwarf Plains) of the of New Jersey are upland forests that have long intrigued biologists.Early in the 20th Century, described them as “desolate stretches of white sand barrens … for the most part devoid of trees higher than one’s knees.” The Pine Plains are dominated by dwarfed Pitch Pines and Blackjack Oaks in the low canopy. Pine Barrens Heather is frequent in the understory. Ground cover includes lichens, mosses, and the sub-shrubs Bearberry and Teaberry.

    Nice set. I love the two sand road photographs. I haven’t been to Warren Grove in a while and I think I’ll have to rectify that thanks to your inspiration.
