Deeper into Pennsylvania

The plan for today was just to go all the way west to Allentown and then head South and get as many as possible. It worked out okay. Because of the warmer weather, there was a lot more mud than snow.

One of the fun aspects about venturing into new territory is there are some vintage caches. Indeed, JQ001-Green Lane is over 3 years old and has been around longer than I've been geocaching! Also noteworthy was the colorful Irish Flag cache, which was painted in the colors of the Irish flag.

NACC Attack Cache
Louise Moore County Park in Easton.

Lehigh Center Micro
Lehigh Center Mall in Bethlehem. A quick strip mall micro cache.

Bethlehem. Another quick strip mall micro cache.

Bonds Eye
Emmaus. No idea what this park is except that it is next to Rodale, publisher of Prevention, Runner's World and Men's Health.

JQ001-Green Lane
Green Lane Reservoir Park in Pennsburg. This cache is 3 years old and has been around longer than I've been geocaching! Also remarkably well-preserved because it doesn't look a day over 3 months.

Green Lane Reservoir Park in Glast few sunny daysreen Lane. Cache has a lot of comic books but no time to read them. :)

Theronium Special (fixed coordinates, hopefully)
Harleysville. Pretty unusual arrangement because recommended parking for this cache was in someone's driveway and access was through his yard to an old asphalt path. I believe the resident was the one who placed the cache.

forbidden fruit
Orchard Hill Park in Harleysville. A fruit orchard that has been purchased by the town to turn into an open space area. However, there are still apple trees there.

Irish Flag
Milford Township Park in Quakertown. It's the most colorful cache of the day as it has been painted in the colors of the Irish Flag.
