Lancaster LXII and LXIII, LOST Art

I hadn't been to Lancaster since April, so I figured it was time to find the new caches placed since my last trip. Even if it rained in the afternoon, all in all, it was a pleasant day. I also took a look at the castle-like Lancaster County Prison, even though it wasn't a geocache site. It's still in use today and looks pretty much the way it did when it was built in 1851 for $102,000.

That night, I noticed that a series of 46 puzzle caches had been published in southern Lancaster. The cache icons spell out the word LOST on the map but the actual locations are all along the Enola Low Grade Trail between Martic and Pequea. It's yet another example of Geo Art, the latest fad in power trails. :) Anyway, it was too much manual work and all the puzzles were similar, so I wrote programs to solve the puzzles and convert the answers to coordinates. On Sunday, I started the hike at the east end of the series and worked my way towards Martic, moving my car twice. The only one in the series I couldn't find was #5. Most of the caches were easy, although there were a few that I considered tricky. After that, I finished a few more geocaches around the area before returning home.
