Located just North of Clinton Rd in West Milford, someone has cleverly managed to stash various objects atop a dozen telephone poles along Route 23. No one knows who, why or when he does it. They just suddenly “appear”. The poles do not have the typical side rails for climbing it, so you need either specialized pole climbing equipment or a bucket truck. This leads me to think that it may be a current (or former) employee of the phone or electric company. Regardless, it is a rather strange site to see these things atop the poles. They’re so small you almost might miss them. Further South on Route 23 about 3-4 miles are about another dozen poles that have been “decorated”. What makes me the most curious is how are they secured there? Bolts? Screws? Crazy glue?
