On Saturday, I returned to the Elizabethtown area. This time, I went for the series of caches along the Conewago Trail and the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail, which are connected. Most of the "Trail Watcher" caches along this trail are animals, such as the rabbit, dragon, and lizard. However, there were also a bowling ball (not part of the same series but still unusual) and an antique GPS. I also finally was able to find the caches I'd driven by so many times because those were close to the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The rail trail, in fact, goes under the turnpike.
Sunday was another trip to the Elizabethtown area, to the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail in Conoy. I tackled the "LOST on the NW" series of caches, which were all along the river trail. It was 3 miles of hiking out to the end of the trail, where it looked like there was construction to continue building the trail under the railroad bridge, and 3 miles back. Most of those were quite easy, except "LOST on the NW: I am King of the World". A big tree had fallen over that one, so I had to climb around the top and bottom of the rock wall and through some bushes from a few different directions in the course of searching for it. Dinner was a visit to Hoss's in Elizabethtown. It's one of those places where one can have ice cream and French onion soup at the same time and dress up fruit with peanut butter fudge because all those items are at the salad bar!
