Found it Kordite found Stalagmites On The Yough (Locked)

Sunday, May 21, 2006Pennsylvania

My plan for today to to star at Boston and ride my bike down to Connellsville and back; a round trip of about 80 miles. This is preparation for an even longer ride I'll be starting later in the week when my final destination is Washington DC.

I started fairly early, abouth 7:30 in the morning, the bracing 48 degrees unseasonable for the end of MAY. It started out with a touch of sun and blue sky but soon couded over with occasional sprinkles.

I've seen the tufa before but did you know it's not as rare as you think? If you continue further down the trail past the Rt79 overpass there are two more. At least, these formations look pretty similar. I suppose it would take a geologist to be sure.

After that, I continued on my way. Before I got to Connellsville the sky opened up with a significant shower. The way back from Connellsville started out really cold so I threw my shell back on. That only lasted a half an hour as I warmed up and put the shell back in the trunk bag. Then, the clouds broke and the sun came out. The fleece was stripped on too and it became a very nice ride. My ears even got a little sunburned.

I leave for DC on Wednesday. read about it here:

Kordite at the Port Royal TufaYea, that's a cinder block in the trail. It is simulating the supplies that I will be carrying with me for my trip to DC.

infoAn Earthcache is an educational form of a virtual cache. The reward for these caches is learning more about the planet on which we live - its landscapes, its geology or the minerals and fossils that are found there. Many Earthcaches are in National Parks. Some are multi-cache in form, and some have a physical log book located in or close to a Visitor Center. Earthcaches are developed in association with the Geological Society of America.
