Hackensack River Trips

Various shots on the Hackensack mostly from late summer and early fall 2010 with a few older ones thrown in.

The Hackensack gets short shift for being polluted, muddy crowded…well, you get the idea. However, of it’s many redeeming values, the most important is that is close to me and a lot of other people. It’s also a rich tidal estuary…a little too rich, with too much fertilizer from too many lawns and the like…but full of wildlife, especially herons, ospreys and eagles during the winter (as well as the usual gulls, blackbirds and the geese). So instead of driving get out on the Hack.
