Lehigh Valley, Skillman

On Saturday, I'd planned to go to Allentown to get the latest "Play Anywhere" Wherigo caches, but how could I resist a little side trip to the Morton Morton house? Folks in Lehigh Valley have gotten rather daring with their geocaches. This big frog geocache, for example, is slightly hidden only because of the vegetation but I think they're really counting on no one venturing out to that side of the park. And then, there was the Tuma Butt geocache. And you thought geocaches couldn't be risque!

Sunday's trip was to the Skillman / Montgomery / Hopewell area since I wanted to visit MOOYAH Burgers again. As I discovered, this area is rather artsy. The parks are decorated with various sculptures and art pieces, such as historic house scale models, abstract sculptures, a mask, and a meditative figure. I spent most of the day though on the Skillman Park Geotrail, a collection of geocaches in Skillman Park, a relatively large park built on the grounds of a former state-run psychiatric institution.
