List Description

New Jersey has a nice variety to its county high points. This list has points in real forested mountains, suburban sprawl, and flat farmland. Passaic and Warren counties are the most serious hikes, with the rest being relatively easy drive-ups or short hikes. Several of these have multiple contours that compete for the high point title, and visting all of them can often be the most time-consuming part of a New Jersey highpointing adventure.

Mike Schwartz of Mendham, NJ has completed this list 13 times as of early 2008.


Sources that were used to help me compile this list include:

  • A 1960s-vintage New Jersey State Almanac that listed the county high points. Many were incorrect, since the list was based on old maps, but it was the first county high point list I had ever seen anywhere and got me pointed in the right direction.
  • Using the above source and USGS maps, I determined almost all of these points by personal research done prior to 1990.
  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled 1993 by Andy Martin, reviewed by Michael Schwartz.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
