Western NJ

Okay, I had enough of Westchester for one weekend. :) So I went out to Western NJ, keeping close to I-80. I thought I'd just pick up a few geocaches for the day (starting with the puzzle cache because I had the solution) but these are like peanuts, so you can't stop at just one.

Generally, it was a quiet, uneventful day. Had a bit of excitement when I met a skunk while crossing a field in Blairstown. Then I went back for an early dinner, and then home so that I could do the laundry.
