Bucks County

Just finishing off more of the dense swarm of geocaches that is Bucks County this weekend. On Saturday, I started in Warminster and continued through Jamison, Buckingham, Holicong, and Solebury. On Sunday, I covered Warminster again, and Huntingdon Valley, Feasterville, Bensalem, and Northeast Philadelphia.

This time, I attempted some of the higher-terrain geocaches because it wasn't right to keep passing those by without even taking a look. Those were as I expected. Generally, anything rated 3 stars and above was in a dense tangle of vegetation in the summer. Still, with a bit of patience and a pair of hedge clippers, I was able to get to and find most of them. Some wooded areas weren't so bad once I broke through the weeds at the tree line. However, I didn't attempt the set of geocaches in Dark Hollow Park because I couldn't even see the trail!

Nicest geocache this weekend was "Season's Greetings". It's a box that looks like a Christmas present. It was placed for Christmas 2012, so I was actually nearly a year and a half late but it's still in good condition and well-stocked with holiday decorations. Also notable was "Cathedral Studio & Shops Cache", which is near the Bryn Athyn Cathedral. I got the impression that the cathedral is quite a landmark in Northern Philadelphia but until Sunday, I hadn't seen it.
