This is a photo of Surprise Lake, taken in 2000 in the Watchung Reservation, Union County, NJ.
The Rez, as I affectionately call it, has been my home away from home for more than 30 yrs. It is not an exaggeration to say I have spent 1/2 my life in the forests of this park.
I practically grew up on these trails; horseback riding and hiking in all seasons. It is where I take 75% or more of the photos in my gallery and it is where I go to reconnect with nature.
It is one of the few large tracks of wilderness in Union County, NJ and is home to countless species of wildlife.
