Sorry I missed you, Doc, that was a nice location.
I wondered about going further down, but it was pretty soft down
where the logs were, and I'm not doing that on my own.

This is what the beginning of the road looked like last October and today:


If you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day, I expect you to celebrate St Andrew's Day too with
a bowl of cullen skink and a mince pie.

New tag.

This one's a lot less out of the way, and has some interesting history,
but you might need to do an apprenticeship to work at the neighbouring attraction.

The road runs North West to South East. At the NW end:


The duck is in a cemetery...:




...under a log behind a grave:






If you continue along the road to the SW you will be warned:


Here is the SW end of the road, looking back the way we came:

Sorry. I went back and deleted the offensive photo...

Nice afternoon for a high-speed dirt ride, no?

You might have to climb to the Top of a Tree to find this next road.


The duck is in a fence post behind the bike in the next shot.

Yes indeedy.

Cowperthwaite Road goes right through the Trump National Golf Course,
lots of good roads around there for the bike to take a nap on.
A little bit of history too, makes a change from the usual rusty, discarded
object.

Cowperthwaite Road Bedminster, NJ 07921

The New Tag

overlooking this waters bound for the Passaic River and on a road named after the only "Lord" that embraced the patriot's cause (well, his claim was on the peerage of Scotland, anyway )



on the southwest side on this little bridge


the ducky rest near his beloved water


tucked under the root of the tree


I did cover it because the nights are still cold and nobody wants to carry around a sick bird


the road facing west


and the road facing east

in this shot you can see a renovated White Bridge that replaced a very old bridge of the same color.

Good Luck

I did get dirty, I tried a different location, but the hill is no longer frozen and the tires in my bikes are not good for the mud
