I have done a few hikes from Phillipsburg to Carpentersville in the recent past.
About six miles each way at two hours walking each way. Good exercise.
I am a train buff so most of my photos are of the train.
I will limit them here since this is a pine barrens forum.
Still I want to advertise some of New Jersey's natural beauty.
Perhaps some people would like to visit this area on their own.

I start with this photo of the steam engine at Phillipsburg.
They had a Thomas the train special event that day.
You can see the Thomas engine in the background.
Many families enjoyed the day.

Over a mile away on my walk is this inactive railroad bridge.

Two miles or so later I get to the track area. I should have taken more photos of the scenic route.

I like photographs of tracks. The background scenery compliments my photo.

A partial view of the Delaware River. My only photo of the river.
I was focused on the train operations that day.

Nice spring day for a long walk in the bucolic area of Western New Jersey.

Worth the twelve miles roundtrip hike.
Comfortable temperatures every time.
