Hi Anthony, here's a few pics that I posted in the gallery in 2009 of the blue hole and I took these shots in 1992.The Blue Hole in Hammonton.
Pineywoman-Here is one in Winslow on my recent visit. However, would never swim in these due to high levels of pollution.
There's quite a few more I've discovered over the years, but haven't posted them. Since June, I've been trekking all over the place. I was tired of staying home with my kid all day and wanted to get the heck out. (He's now 14 months old) I went to the islands with my best friend as a present from my husband to liven my spirits and the fire has been fueling since. I came back revitalized and refreshed. Going from hating NJ my entire life to enamoured with our natural beauty. As I say over and over again, to Ben (the admin) and other folks I've talked to on here. I am so happy to have found this site. It feels awesome to find folks with similar interests and for wanting to preserve our beauty for generations to come. My friends aren't as adventurous as I am so it is nice to have met new "friends." I hope to share my stories and adventures to all of you. Also, share my knowledge about my discoveries. Happy Adventures, Pine Baron! (Aka John)
If you see I don't give up the location. A man drowned here a few weeks back and of course I don't want to be liable for anyone's stupidity.
I'm not here to promote my site and do not get paid for my explorations. However, I am here to exchange info for the folks that truly love nature on this site.
That is very cool Mark. Have you ever studied the USGS LIDAR imagery (see http://forums.njpinebarrens.com/threads/lidar-in-the-pines-very-cool.6936/)? I'd think it would show these formations very clearly. I was just looking a few days ago and noticed they have added new coverage in the pines - they finally have the area around my own house in fact.Click on poster icon for a PDF copy of The periglacial legacy of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, USA: climate history and geomorphic heritage as a land-use management tool.
