|View of the old Salem Quarry, facing north from the overlook|
I'd not been to the quarry before. It was more extensive than I expected, bigger than most of the others I've seen in this area. There's a nice observation deck that extends out over the edge of the quarry, with an ironwork floor that allows you to see the vast, empty space directly beneath you. Several miles to the north, you can see the Winston-Salem skyline, today half-hidden by the overcast skies. The multi-cache here was our favorite of the day, requiring us to gather information from the around the overlook to calculate the coordinates to the final stage, which was a big old ammo box.
Otherwise, have been busy with writing, both new stuff and re-working some old. A nice party at Kimberly's last night starring geocachers and oenophiles—always a good combination.
Been enjoying some Stranger Things, so I'm going to work in another episode or two this evening.
Over and out.
