Finishing the Henry Hudson Trail, Rainy Day Chester County

On Saturday, I returned to the Henry Hudson Trail in Monmouth County to finish the remainder of the animals series. This time, I started at the other end in Leonardo and did geocaches "Anaconda" thru "Chipmunk". On this part of the trail though, they weren't strictly in alphabetical order. I still had plenty of time after that, so I went around Atlantic Highlands, Keansburg, Middletown, and Keyport to do more geocaches in the area. I was amazed at how much money these beach towns have spent on their waterfronts. Keyport, in particular, had the most well-lit gazebo I've ever seen. However, that made finding the geocache easy, even at night. The boardwalk in Laurence Harbor was a pretty nice walk at night too.

Sunday was a rainy day, so I woke up late and had breakfast out at the local IHOP. (I had a coupon for a free Rooty Tooty.) My plan was to do just a few geocaches in the afternoon between rain showers. So I headed out to West Chester and Exton after breakfast. Most of the geocaches I did were pretty quick. The exception, "WO-10 - Station Hillside Hollow", required a climb up a steep hillside. I apparently saved the best one for last though. "Mon Sheree Arbor" was a rather tricky geocache. I actually saw it pretty early in my search but didn't think it was the cache. Still, something about the way it was sitting bothered me enough that I had to go back and take a closer look, and that's how I found the hidden tube. Sometimes, I've got to pay more attention to a hunch.
