Stroudsburg and the Poconos

Went to Northeast Pennsylvania, specifically the Pocono Area, today. This is a well-known ski resort destination, so it's rather odd seeing the whole place completely without snow except for the top of Camelback Mountain. They must have the snow-making machines going full time up there.

They didn't have very many new geocaches in this area, so I combined the new ones with some that I didn't get the last time. It's a scenic area. Lots of streams and pine woods. Except for Kettle Creek, I didn't tackle anything too hilly.

The one-way streets in downtown Stroudsburg are very confusing. In order to get from I-80 to Route 191 Northbound, you have to make 4 turns! After that, I didn't know whether I was coming or going.

Hit 10,000 miles on the way back.

Had another Chinese New Year special this evening: Golden Phoenix. Funny, the phoenix looked a lot like chicken. :)
