Revisit Apple Pie Hill
Failed Hike to the Apple pie hill missed the pink blaze.
Makes some great hikers on the trail who tried to help me find my lost phone.
I will make it to the tower another day.
I did some aerial video slo-mo shots. Puzzled over no return to hole location.
I found an interesting deer skull and will photograph it.
Got to do a tick check.
Apple Pie Hill is a hill in Tabernacle Township, Burlington County, New Jersey, United States. It is 205 feet tall, making it one of the highest points of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. A 60-foot-tall fire tower stands atop the summit
I wanted a landscape shot similar to one made by the great Pine Barrens photographer Albert Horner. This photograph is my humble attempt.
I chickened out on the climb to the top, I only made it mid-way. The Fear Factor set in, but I will return in another stormy day.
Some of the photos are aerial photos.

Hike the Batona Trail from the Carranza Memorial to Apple Pie Hill and climb the fire tower for a panoramic view.
Climb 60’ up the tower for a panoramic view from the highest point in the Pine Barrens (a whopping 209 feet above sea level!) and one of the most unique vistas in the state.
I would be tempted to climb as well! Although a drone would help! Great story, Louis. What is it like when fall comes around?
