Eagle Rock Reservation

After a fine day of teaching and fellowship at today's marriage and family seminar at the Montclair (NJ) Salvation Army corps, our friends Larry and Janet Ashcraft took me and the lovely Robin for a quick visit to Eagle Rock Reservation and its amazing view of The Big Apple:

Eagle Rock Reservation is 400+ acres of hills, streams, and valleys located on the borders of West Orange, Verona, and Montclair, New Jersey. During our years of living in the area (roughly a bajillion years ago), Robin and I several times visited this spot for Easter morning sunrise services.

Since then, several moving 9/11 memorials have been added to the site, including the above. The waist-high wall in two of the photos above is inscribed with names of the victims of that terrible day. And in the NY skyline can be seen the under-construction Freedom Tower that is being built on the site of the World Trade Center.

It's a beautiful spot filled with fond memories...and great significance.
