Sunny. 50°F and a bit over. Except for the last cache, which was later at night, I only needed a light jacket.

Most of today's geocaches were easy. A few were harder to find but still doable in a short time. One was at an inadvisable location, according to a police officer who happened to come by, so I passed that message to the cache owner. I also went for "Double Helix". That puzzle cache involved genetics, which is not within my realm of knowledge, but it turned out to be a snap.

Dinner was a chili on rice bowl and cream of mushroom soup at Wawa in Matawan. Then I remembered that there was a night cache (Our 50th - Creatures of the Night) at South Mountain Reservation so I did that one on my way home. It was a standard trail of reflectors with a few surprises along the way. The reflectors were good enough that except for a few trouble spots, I only needed to use my flashlight in LED mode. Until that cache was posted, I didn't know that one could visit South Mountain at night. (until 10pm, by law) But when I went there tonight, I saw cars still parked at some of the trailheads. So it must be okay.
