Lancaster LXII, Lancaster LXIII, and Hershey/Palmyra

Yippee! Another trip to Lancaster County. It was a day of scenery, gardens, frog, and ruins. Actually, the garden area, next to Donegal Presbyterian Church, had interesting history because that's the location of the Witness Tree, where Reverend McFarquhar and congregation vowed to join forces against the British in September of 1777, upon hearing news that the British army had left New York to invade Pennsylvania. Anyway, the Pastor Tom saw that I was getting information from the plaques and offered a short tour of the church. There are some unusual things about this church. The pews were made from window shutters donated by the community, an 18th-century example of recycling and also they couldn't get enough wood back then. Also, the bones of a horse are buried under the church. They found those while doing renovation work about 25 years ago.

On Sunday, I returned to the same area around Elizabethtown in Lancaster County for some geocaches in the Elizabethtown College area. It's kind of neat that they formed a geocaching club at this college. After that, I continued to Middletown and Swatara. I went for some geocaches along the Swatara Creek Trail before giving up because the area was rather overgrown with vegetation. So I pushed onwards into Hummelstown and Hershey. (I didn't really go to Clown Park but I thought the sign was funny.)
