Around Baltimore - Rosedale, Essex, Dundalk, White Marsh, Towson, Northern Baltimore

This weekend was about retracing an arc around Baltimore, to the east and to the north, to get some of the newer geocaches in those areas. The only part that was new to me was Northern Baltimore, just south of Towson, but even then, I'd been to a slice of the area a few years before. Saturday's trip was to Rosedale, Essex, and Dundalk, with the goal of hitting the "HBWLADS" series, which was placed for a recent geocaching event at North Point. When I got there though, I realized that I'd been there before for a previous cache series and some, if not all, the hiding spots were the same as the previous series. Still, it was a good revisit.

Sunday's trip was first to White Marsh, for some geocaches near the mall, and then on to Towson and south into Northern Baltimore. Kept heading south until the parking problems got too annoying and then turned around, back towards Towson. I couldn't believe that even on Sunday, parking was such a problem in that part of Baltimore but apparently, the roadsides, whether in residential areas or near businesses, are close to 100% filled with parked cars. For the day, there was another cache series, "Schmenards trail". There were 5 caches but for some reason, it was missing #4. The one thing I didn't like was two geocaches, "The Trash Cache" and "The Pearly White Cache", seemed to be intentionally hidden in the trashiest spots possible. The former was between a Jersey barrier and a fence, where litter accumulates and in all likelihood, never gets removed. The latter was hidden where people smoke outside the doors of a building and was literally sitting in a bed of cigarette butts, which made the cache name ironic. I hope it isn't the start of a new trashy cache trend but if it is, perhaps I should go to a different area or just play Munzee there, which is a very active game in the White Marsh area.
