It was a beautiful weekend to explore New Jersey.

We live in a state that offers everything from lovely beaches to mountain views and everything in between.

"Silly shoobie, there are better ways to the Jersey Shore than through Wharton State Forest." (-David)

Lesson learned?

Be careful out there!
