The nearest town to our home in Pennsylvania will soon lose its traffic light. There's a couple of lights on the bypass, but the light on main street has gone dark. Three stop signs stand ready to control traffic.
The blue sky doesn't tell the tale of cold. While we were on the open towpath a winter wind kept us moving. When the trail dropped into the treeline the walk was less harsh. The cache finds were quick.

Molly Stark Park. The 1929 sanatorium on the grounds is always a disturbing site. Tuberculosis patients were brought to this hospital in a time when the sickness scared people. It amazingly remained open until 1995. The county has fenced the site since our last visit to prevent scrappers and paranormal believers from endangering themselves with asbestos exposure.

I'm happy to say no turkeys were hurt during this rush hour street crossing on my way home. Turkeys usually keep moving where humans are involved, but this pair remained by the side of the road after their crossing.

I was on my way home from one of my frequent trips to Indiana and stopped at Oak Openings Park near Toledo. The trails are flat, but the weather was mild. There were a few 10+ year-old caches there for me to find at this quiet park.
Another day brought another visit to Stark County. The day's weather started as some of the worst for driving, but by the time we reached Deer Creek, it was just grey. The day never got very bright and a cold wind chilled every time we were walking in the open area.

Phineas had mended to a point where he was walking normally and had good energy levels. We decided to give him a few caching walks while geocaching in Medina. I usually start looking for skunk cabbage in February hoping for an early sign of spring, but today was an early sighting.

We do our best to keep Phineas on leash. He's a beagle. Once he gets loose, his nose owns him. We enjoyed the first at Hatch Run so much that we decided to make a second day on the series starting with a few outside the conservation area. The afternoon started wonderfully. We enjoyed a view of the 2015 Pennsylvania River of the Year and made our way to Hatch Run. Conewango Creek... Pennsylvania's River of the Year for 2015

Phineas started the year off in a festive mood; maybe too festive.

A local cacher has placed a series of musical puzzles around performers and bands he likes and a few he doesn't like. I don's always agree with his opinions, but I really enjoy the musical walk in the past. We had solved a few of these and were determined to do some walking so we were off to the park. Persistent rains upped the terrain of a few caches. Wading through freesing water in places it would not normally be was a cold undertaking.
