I picked Ephrata because I heard it mentioned on the radio during a previous trip to Lancaster. It's not a really big town but it has a few strip malls, lots of residential areas, a good community park with 5 geocaches (of which I found 4. Left the last one for next time because I didn't see a good trail going in that direction.), a tank, and a library. Yes, there were geocaches at the tank ("Former Defender") and the library ("Mr. Bookman") too.
Ended the day as usual at the fictional pirate fast food restaurant in Lancaster. I had fish and more and I tried a Strawberry IceFlow because I had a coupon for that. It's frozen lemonade. Not sure I'd get that ordinarily but it would be good in 90-degree weather.
