Headed south of the border again this weekend (well, actually a lot more east and just a bit south) but this time it was adults only, no kids (first time in 8 years that we've been able to say that). We traveled to the Finger Lakes area to enjoy a romantic anniversary weekend - by romantic, I mean stopping to find caches, garage sales, thrift shops, driving secondary highways, stuff like that.
We stopped into this park on our way home, and hit the Blue Death Row Trail (what a name!) to visit this virtual. there's just something about graveyards off in the woods. So few gravestones given what we read in the cache description. Wow, this brings the Oliver Twist story to life. After leaving the park, we stopped briefly outside the old asylum building. I'm all for creating ways to reuse a historical building, but not so sure I like the way it's being used now. Not that anyone asked my opinion.
In the end, we found 6 OCNA caches (and dnf'd two), also visited the oldest geocache in the state and picked up two other gc.com caches plus a few qualifiers for some TerraCaching locationless caches. A good weekend all around. Thanks Sabrefan7 for supplying 5 of the 6 OCNA caches that we found this weekend.

Wow, what great history, and who would have thought you'd find a cemetery back there! I ran into a couple with a baby in one of those cool running and/or trail stollers, but I had the location to myself after they left. Very nicely maintained, and I read the whole description on the GPS before scrolling down to see what the log password was. Got that no problem. Also stumbled on the Rolling Hill Asylum itself on the way to the park, and took a pic and made it a Sight on Sighter, although my phone camera sucks. Outstanding cache here, thanks.

Boy my phone camera sucks. I should work on that.

Would you believe I had muggles to deal with at this cache? Oh, it's true. I should start out by saying that I thought I was looking for a physical cache here since I forgot to transfer all the OCUS caches from GSAK into my GPS, and of course Sprint reception is terrible at best out here in the park. So after seeing the muggles horsing around at GZ I decided to go find the froggy site caches and come back later.

I should also mention that since I didn't have the coords already in the GPS, I had to get them off the official OCUS app. Oddly enough, the app displays coords in decimal degrees, so I hope that wouldn't hinder my finding ability. After looking around for a few mintues for a physical cache, I was able to get one bar on the phone and fired up the app. Oh, it's a virtual! No wonder I couldn't find it! Once I saw what I needed, I was on my way. TFTC and bringing me to this hidden place.

Grabbed this as part of my 7 cache sojourn in this cool park.  Interesting history about this area.  Thanks for the history lesson and the virtual.

Found with DudleyGrunt on day 1 of our GeoWoodstock based trip to NY and PA.  Interesting to find a cemetery in the middle of the woods like this.  Thanks.

2764.  JuniorNimrod and I made our way over from #3.  This was a bit more of a walk than Jr was expecting, I think.  He hiked 20 miles with his troop last week, so I'd figure this wouldn't have bothered him.  Ah, teenagers.  Who can tell?

Nice area, but should have been here yesterday to commemorate her anniversary.  Awesome last name, btw.

We decided to go back to the car and drive over to the vistor cetner.  Not sure we saved much walking, though.  We came out on Raymond Rd., about half way between the 2 entries to the park.

Thanks and Happy Trails. 

BTW - We're going to try to have an OCUS meetup near checkin at 3pm, at GWS.  Hope to see you there!

I don't really wander through GCP to often and certainly don't know it well but still was certainly surprised when I arrived at this location.   Who would have thunk it?  On of those way back here!  Spent a minute taking in the sites before wandering out on a different path I came in on.  It was a particularly great day to be out wandering.  Thanks for leading us here.
