Reading/Hamburg, Sourland Mountain

Saturday was a rainy day, so I mostly hit the quick and easy geocaches in the suburbs and countryside to the west and northwest of Reading. (Cumru, Wyomissing, Bern, Leesport) Many of those were cemetery geocaches, thanks to the "Lying In Wait" cache series. Later in the afternoon, the rain stopped, so I took a mile-long hike in SGL 110. Then I hurried back to the parking area since the rain started again just as I was nearly done with that hike.

Sunday began with some dinosaur adventures at the hadrosaurus site in Haddonfield. Then, there was a walk across a pipeline bridge. Although it seemed fine, I wasn't sure if the walkway was sturdy so I had to be careful. And then, there was a geocache on a pedestrian overpass in Collingswood. Not so much of an adventure there. Later in the afternoon, I headed over to Sourland Mountain Reservation in Belle Mead. There were two cache series there, Sweet and Sour, which combined into a long hike from one park entrance to another. The "Sweet" series had some funny caches, like this deer skull with bloodshot eyeballs. One of the stops in Sourland was an abandoned blue Corvair, where the "Dude, where's my Corvair?" geocache was hidden. This was challenging to access due to the overgrowth but there was a faint trail from previous visitors to the abandoned car.
