Over the last few weeks, I've ventured up to North Jersey to capture some of the foliage, as well as the beautiful mountainous landscape. Recently, however, my family and I discovered a beautiful park much closer to home, right in Monmouth County.

The Manasquan Reservoir. It’s a 1200 acre park in a beautiful setting, featuring two hiking trails, a 1 mile Nature Trail and a 5 mile Perimeter Trail, as well as fishing and a playground. If you live anywhere near Howell, I recommend the park. It’s absolutely beautiful.
