From there we went out by South Orange and found a wooded park and searched for some geocaches. The park was a scout camping trails area, and we found a couple of caches cleverly hidden.
On the way from there, we passed a old bridge in some trees and Laurie thought we'd stop for some pictures. What we found was a small lake, a river, and an old power plant that had burnt down. There was a lot of things to take pictures of including colorful graffiti decorating the ruins.

|Yes, we walked across this.|
We trapesed around the woods looking for two caches. One place I thought I's find one was a tree trunk about 4 feet high. It was hollowed out despite being still rooted. I leaned over and looked in. Two green eyes of a small red striped cat stared up at me. I have no doubt the cat was wild, but it didn't seem too worried about me and just sat and watched as we continued looking around. One was a small buffalo figuring with a place to hold a sign-in log hanging in a tree. The other was more elusive, we walked all over and even up to the road nearby. I eventually came down where she was looking. At one time, she had been sitting on some rocks. Moving around she later pointed to those rocks and said they were a small pile and I should check it out. There it was.
