After nearly six months without a Flight Highlight entry, this day's weather allowed us to do just that.  A flight north to the ski areas of northern New Jersey was our original destination.  We then climbed to just over 7,000 feet to avoid the NYC class bravo airspace as we made our way in a southerly direction, taking us over the meadows near Newark, NJ and over to Manhattan, NY.  Finally, because of the lowering clouds, we took a westerly course across north-central NJ, beginning at Sandy Hook.  I know it's been a while since my last update, but I hope you enjoy this selection nonetheless...
