High Point Monument

High Point Monument in the fog... with bikers.

Ugh. Awful weather today. Apparently it’s a nor’easter.

Speaking of bad weather, how ’bout fog?

Here’s a photo of High Point Monument when there’s slightly less fog obstructing everything:

High Point Monument: so that's what it looks like!

According to a plaque at the base…

Base 34 feet square at the platform and 19 feet square where apex begins
The base of the monument is erected on the highest point in the state of New Jersey

Look, an informative plaque.
