Harriman Rainy Day Extravaganza

Harriman State Park on the weekdays... and now the weekends too. Actually, there was rain in the forecast but I figured I could get the six caches on the Africa Loop before the heavy rain started. Well, I did and then it rained. But I pressed on anyway and got 3 more caches after that. The cumulative distance on foot is over 10 miles and my socks are toxic waste.

The first six caches are on the Africa Loop. I saved the track log to see what it would look like and it's actually more like South America.

Africa Loop Series 1: The Nile (New York)
On Tom Jones Mountain, where it's not unusual to be loved by anyone.

Africa Loop Series 2: Sahara (New York)
On the other side of Tom Jones Mountain.

Africa Loop Series 3: Congo (New York)
Bottom of Parker Cabin Mountain.

Africa Loop Series 4: Zulu (New York)
Yellow Triangle Trail near powerlines.

Africa Loop Series 5: Serengeti (New York)
On the shore of Lake Skenonto.

Africa Loop Series 6: Timbuktu (New York)

Hogencamp Mine Cache (New York)
Hogencamp Mine Complex off the Dunning Trail. Have to be careful not to fall into the mine hole.
