Valley Forge, Doylestown, Reading

First goal on Saturday was to visit Valley Forge National Historic Park to look at some dolomite rock formations and get information for the "VFEC2: Parking Lot Stromatolites" and "VFEC3: The Port Kennedy Quarry" earthcaches. I needed those earthcaches for the High-Five for the Earth souvenir, part of Geocaching Road Trip '15. I guess it's a good thing I haven't been too diligent about finishing up all the earthcaches in this region because otherwise, there wouldn't have been a bunch that were within 30 miles of home! After that, we geocached our way up through Lower Gwynedd, Montgomeryville, and New Britain, with a final destination of Doylestown. Downtown Doylestown was a mess of congestion and parking was tough but we still got all the geocaches there and also visited the Little Free Library in the residential area just outside of the downtown.

Sunday's plan was to hit the Reading area again (including Shillington, Wyomissing, Mohnton, and Leesport) for puzzle caches since I'd solved more than 20 of those over the past week. My initial thought was I should save the puzzle caches for the last Geocaching Road Trip '15 souvenir, which comes out in two weeks. But then I realized I'm solving new puzzles all the time now, so it's pointless to save those. Most of those puzzle caches have themes and the physical geocaches follow the themes. So "Setz der Disch", which is food themed, is a roast turkey. The "Creature Feature" puzzles are animal-themed and "7 Creature Feature: Who Let the Dogs Out?" is a dog head, which admittedly is a bit bizarre to find in a camouflage bag in the woods.
