Lancaster XXXVI - Finishing the Enola Rail Trail

Sunny, 70°F. Today, I went to Martic and Conestoga Townships in Lancaster County to finish the geocaches along the last stretch of the Enola Low-Grade Trail. First, I parked just before cache #46 and did caches #46 to #60. I'd already finished caches #28-45 on a previous weekend, so I parked near cache #25 and did #25 to #1, and #26. #27 is on the other side of a closed rail bridge, so I moved the car again and did one last 1-mile round trip hike to get that one. I think I covered about 10 miles on foot. It wasn't much of a problem except my feet started to hurt near the end of 20+ miles of walking on the uneven gravel path in two days. So thank goodness it's done and over!

The most interesting thing I saw on the rail trail was a praying mantis, which I almost stepped on by accident because it was right in the middle of the path. It's in the nature of the praying mantis to be still. It didn't budge an inch as I circled it and took a couple of photos. The oddity of the night was a Burger King that used to be a funeral parlor. I picked that this one, on Lititz Pike in Lancaster, to make a stop at because it was the last day to use a coupon for free chicken tenders. I was wondering about its unusual design until I read the comments on its Google Local entry. Would be funny to drive a hearse under that covered area in front and ask for takeout. :)
