Phoenixville, Limerick

On Saturday, I went to Phoenixville and Upper Providence. I'd planned on hitting some cache series in that area, although I didn't know how difficult it would be since there was still some snow on the ground. The Schuylkill River Trail still had long stretches of ice, so that was a bit dangerous. (unrelated sign) However, I was able to finish the "Unsure Trale" series, even though I thought I wasn't going to be able to find the third one in that series. (It was there, except that it had slipped out of its string tether and had gotten lost in the debris on the ground.)

On Sunday, I returned to the same area, but started in Collegeville/Trappe. There was a bit more walking on snow-covered trails and frozen creeks. It started snowing a bit before midday. When the weather changed to a steady rain of ice pellets, I decided I had enough of that and returned to Delaware for an early dinner.

The caches...Collapse )
