Goat Hill, Rising Sun, Conowingo

Cloudy and 75-80°F. The weather wasn't bad so I thought it would be a good day to try some tough hikes. I did that for the first two geocaches at Goat Hill Serpentine Barrens. After that, I headed south into Maryland to do most of the geocaches from Rising Sun west to the Susquehanna River. "The Gorge" was challenging. I had a choice between walking on a dangerous old bridge where only the frame remained or rock-hopping across the stream. I didn't do either one. The water temperature seemed just right so I waded across. I may have to cross the Susquehanna the next time I geocache in Maryland. I'm running low on Cecil County caches. (the ones in no-fee areas anyway)
