Morristown National Historical Park

Today we went hiking in Morristown National Historical Park. This village served as quarters for the American Continental Army led by General George Washington. They camped here during the winter of 1777 and also 1779 - 1780.

There are miles of beautiful forested hiking trails.

Replica of shelter for Continental Army soldiers. A little hiking, a little history, a very pleasant day.

Vegetable and flower garden with beautiful calendula. This farm garden is similar to what would be found during the American Revolutionary time period.

I also like hikes that combine history with nature, like my recent hike to President Hoover's retreat.

Nice pictures, and also those from your kayaking trip are so nice. Both places sound like wonderful spots to spend time in. Art

Hi Art, Thanks! Yes, I agree, a little history, a little nature is fun. The kayaking was wonderful because I saw some birds up close that I don't often see on land.
