Town of Potts and beyond

Last weekend, I thought the area north of Pottstown was interesting, so this weekend I continued exploring further. Upper Pottsgrove seems to have a number of parks that are essentially strips of land between houses, so if there's a geocache, you know there's only one way to get there. "Beaufort's Run Sanctuary" is a good example of that. With all the ornaments and knick-knacks and padre statue, it looks more like someone's yard than a wildlife sanctuary! After that, I went farther north to Barto to the Padre Pio Center, where Padre Raffaele stands. I was surprised that they permitted a geocache right in the shrine area. It was hanging in a rather obvious manner on a tree and apparently, it was the groundskeeper's idea to put it there. The weirdest geocache of the day was "Gleep and Gloop". When I found the container, I saw that it was full of goop and I had to stick a finger in to get the log out. What a novelty.

On Sunday, I started with the stretch between Morgantown and Flying Hills, where there were a few puzzle caches that I'd solved. After that, I went to Robeson and the Birdsboro Reservoir Area. This is a neat area for a walk because the path is the abandoned Route 82, which reminds me of the abandoned turnpike, except that it's smaller. It's also a fairly easy walk as long as one takes care not to fall into parts of the road that have collapsed away. (geocaches: "Old 82 Parking", "Lonely Road", "Presidential Cache- Van Buren") After that, I went to downtown Birdsboro to see another collapsing structure, the old Route 345 bridge, which they are in the process of tearing down. ("Under Destruction" geocache nearby.)
