Upper Macungie (Lehigh Valley) and Harford County

It was another sunny and hot weekend. Afternoons were over 90°F, with the temperature peaking at 104°F on Sunday. On Saturday morning, I went to Upper Macungie for the "Cache in the Parks 2012, Upper Macungie Township" geocaching event. This event started at 10am but I didn't feel like waking up early to start the two-hour drive there, so I arrived after the first hour of the event. This geocaching event was a teaching event with a presentation and a geocaching outing to show beginners the ropes. By the time I got there, the presentation had ended and the class was heading out into the park to do some nearby geocaches. However, I still got the chance to talk to some of the LVGC regulars. Then I went off on my own to find geocaches in the area. I managed to do over 30 geocaches in a small area centered around the town of Weisenberg. It appeared that vauction and a few other geocachers had been busy populating the town with geocaches, so there were many along the quiet country roads. There were even five geocaches in Weisenberg Recreation Area, a park that is still undeveloped!

On Sunday, I went to Harford and Baltimore Counties to do geocaches in Abingdon, Bel Air, and White Marsh. It's the same area as some of my earlier trips but this time, since I knew the area a bit better, I tried to do geocaches that I skipped past on previous trips. I think it's a better idea to visit this area on Sunday instead of Saturday because of traffic issues. White Marsh, especially, is ridiculously congested with shopper traffic on Saturday but I had no problems at all there on Sunday evening.
