I did the reverse of this hike: http://njhiking.ning.com/profiles/blogs/dunnfield-creek-sunfish-pond
just a little over a year since I hiked to Sunfish Pond the day of the fire, 8/7/10. It was a very foggy morning, which was actually kind of neat. (Better fog than smoke!)
Did not see any snakes like NJ Hiking did, but saw a ton of huge tadpoles in the process of becoming frogs in Sunfish Pond. At first they all splashed away but when I sat hunched on a rock, camera in hand, they all reappeared and seemed to be very happy to pose for a photo shoot.
