I left work for the weekend, and it was a bright and warm early spring day. However, it was very windy, making the temperature feel much colder than it actually was. I parked at the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail at Gate Hill Road, and took the service road up Jackie Jones Mountain. Upon reaching the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail, I took that trail down, passing the ORAK ruins. At the Minisceongo Creek at the bridge near the beginning of the hike, I went to the brook, which was flowing very strong, and took some pictures.
