Cedar Grove, Morristown, Madison

Morgan's Farm

Once again, I woke up earlier than usual even though I didn't set the alarm on the clock radio. After taking care of a few matters, I went out for a bunch of geocaches in Essex and Morris Counties. This time, I picked all the geocaches that I'd skipped throughout the year because they were either time-consuming or a bit out of the way. Well, I had time today and they were enjoyable.

The last geocache was near Atlanta Bread Company in Madison. So after I found that cache, I dropped in at Atlanta Bread to have soup in a bread bowl. Atlanta Bread is similar to Panera Bread.

Plans for next week are taking shape. I received a $50 hotel coupon from Expedia so I'll be going to Delaware, staying overnight, and attending a geocaching event, just like I did last December. Also have a number of other events lined up in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Long Island, although I'm not sure I'll be able to get out to all of those. We'll see.

Rockland Lake, White Plains

Rockland Lake State Park

Wasn't planning on doing too much outdoors today because I knew it would snow at some point. First, I went to Rockland Lake State Park for "Ice Cake Pass". I thought it would be a steep climb because of the altitude difference between the shore of the Hudson River and the interior part of the park, but I found a woods road that would take me down the final drop safely. After that, I went to White Plains for a bunch of geocaches. It started snowing while I was in Cranberry Lake Park, so I left the park quickly and went home.
