Day 95 PA 611 to Millbrook-Blairstown Rd (14.0 miles) 1307.6 miles total

Rocks don’t magically end when you cross the border but are better.
Saw bear #3 today. It was going south about 20 yds off trail. Paid no attention to me. I even backtracked about 100 yds (hate doing that usually) hoping it would pose for a photo. Uncooperative. May have to use your imagination on this one!
You can see his head below if you look closely.
If you only know NJ from shows like the Sopranos, it’s way different here in NW Jersey. Lots of wildlife, forests, etc. Former neighbors, Jim and Mary Lynn) had a bear on their deck and there was one filmed swimming in Lake Hopatcong this week.
