Pottstown Expansion

Saturday and Sunday were both days with great weather. I continued where I stopped last weekend and geocached to the west of Pottstown, in Stowe, Douglassville, and Birdsboro. I wasn't too fond of Pottstown itself but the areas to the west of it are rather nice. Of course, I may change my mind again when I get closer to Reading but that's for another weekend. A lot of the hiking I did was along the Schuylkill River Trail, which has scenic views, nice wildflowers, and a cat. On Saturday, I also hiked around Monocacy Hill Recreation Area, which has ruins and a mini waterfall.

The funniest geocache of the weekend was a polka-dot chicken. It's from "The Season's Upon Us", a puzzle cache that asks the question about why the chicken crossed the road.
