Morris and Sussex

An easy trip into Morris and Sussex Counties. I don't think I was more than a few miles from the Interstates at any time. I hadn't planned on doing much because I heard that heavy rain would come in the afternoon. It looked like that would happen for quite a while and then the sun came out. So I pressed on and finally, after the 10th cache of the day, the downpour started. Of course, it had to happen when I was more than 3/4 of a mile from the parking area. Fortunately, I had a rain jacket.

Fall colors are coming in gradually. Odd thing is the best colors currently are at the edges of wooded areas, i.e. along the rail-trail and around the parking areas. There's probably an explanation of that in terms of ground water and temperature.

"Y" Rock (New Jersey)
Norvin Green State Forest in West Milford.

Take It and Leave It (New Jersey)
Boonton Reservoir in Kinnelon. A short multi cache that can be completed in less time than most traditional caches, he says.

Brundage Bushwhack (New Jersey)
Brundage Park in Randolph. Very close to the India Brook. Funny, I don't see any outsourced jobs here. :)

Randolph roadside 1 (New Jersey)
Roadside cache in Randolph. I don't think it's technically legal to park here but it's a quick-enough cache.

Xx The Plaster House xX (New Jersey)
Down the trail from the Plaster Mill historical site in Stanhope. Nice ruins. The cache was in a tricky spot but pretty straightforward once I looked from the correct position.

XxITC..II.xX (New Jersey)
Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Stanhope. This is in the low-lying part of the park, not the hilly part.

You've been Found!!!!! (New Jersey)
Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Stanhope. Close to the parking area but still somewhat of a bushwhack. Very unusual housing for the cache. A bunch of geocachers came by while I was there.

Heartbreak Ridge (New Jersey)
Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Stanhope. Up on the mountain ridge.

Sussex Giausar River's Edge (New Jersey)
Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Stanhope. Along the Sussex Branch Trail.

XxThe Mystery TrailxX (New Jersey)
Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Stanhope. Along a blazed trail, off the Sussex Branch Trail.
