Reading, Reading, Reading

Saturday and Sunday were both hot and humid days with temperatures up to 90°F. I made a final push to try to finish off the Reading area geocaches, including some of the puzzles. However, I couldn't do too much hiking because of the weather, so the pagoda area will have to wait for another weekend.

On Saturday, I went all around Reading, starting to the southeast and working my way counterclockwise. On Sunday, I focused on a group of caches to the southwest and west of Reading. Sunday's set was a bit more interesting, not so much for the caches themselves but for the artifacts in the area. "I've fallen and cant get up!!" is at a horizontal Atlas sculpture outside a gym. While I was photographing it, someone yelled out that I could take it home if I wanted. Uhh... no, thanks. "Birds of a Feather" brought me to a Distlefink. The sculpture is of a stylized goldfinch that appears in Pennsylvania Dutch folk art.
