Thanks to volunteer Bruce Davis and his bow saw, the view of Lake Appert and its nifty birds from the Pena Bench got better this week.
That's a before-and-after below.
Great view as always. Above is a view of North Jersey from the summit, with Manhattan in the distance.
Saw a Wild Turducken on its home turf and was able to photograph it. Also heard a few of the tightly knit flock calling.
And enjoyed a small waterfall on the return trip.
(A special thanks to Carol Flanagan for creating the facsimile of the legendary Wild Turduckens of High Mountain pictured here (Thanks, Carol!)
I will try to post my story about Wild Turduckens between now and Thanksgiving.
(This is a great place to explore if you're near there.)
The house itself (above) is fully renovated, and work is underway on the John James Audubon Center for Art and Conservation at Mill Grove. It should open next summer.
A link to the entire website is here.

Stiles said that if anyone said it was a Sharpie, tell them it was a Cooper's. And vice versa.
But they are replica Sharpie legs.
If it weren't for the way the photo was cropped, you could see how sharp the shins were, theoretically.
Thanks to all who answered!
