High Point SP is probably the most gorgeous regions I have ever seen in the tri-state. You would never know you are an hour or so from Manhattan driving through that area.

Remarkable micro-climate as well. High Point has a very high relief -- it's an exposed ridge which literally stands out with very steep inclines on its sides. Consequently, the effect is that it feels much higher than its actual elevation and it has a more extreme climate than one would normally find. Wind gusts of 50+ mph are so common that they're not even mentioned. Its temperature is also usually lower than higher elevations in the Poconos.

Definitely a very interesting region with regard to micro-climates. The ridge is typically the warmest spot on radiational cooling nights, in fact, I remember seeing High Point record a warmer temperature than some areas of Nassau County one morning when RC was full throttle.

Also, I've seen thunderstorms literally explode over Pike County just to the west of the ridge High Point sits atop. Thunderstorms seem to have issues crossing that ridge without losing their punch but some just sit and strengthen to severe level status while meandering aimlessly over Milford and Matamoras, PA. Not to mention the snows the ridge tops get when the coast isn't getting slammed.

There is also a flower called the three toothed cinqufoil that is more typical to summits above tree line found in Canada and New England. Sussex County is unique in a lot of ways. We have the most species of dragon flies for a county in the nation. We also have a flower that is found nowhere else in the world. Here is a decent video about the Kittatinny Mountains

Nice video. There's also tremendous variety in Sussex County and, conversely, much of the county is lowland in a valley between the Kittatinnys and the Ramapos. The valley portion is part of the Great Appalachian Valley which stretches from Alabama to Canada and includes the Hudson Valley as it winds to the north and northeast. I'm in the Ramapo portion of the Appalachians and my house is on Long Mountain which reaches 1200'. Nearby Bearfort Mountain, also part of the Appalachians, reaches over 1400', but the Kittatinys rise to 1800', as you know. The changes in elevation account for all the variety of scenery, vegetation, and climate.
