Cache Attributes

Quick Cache Kid Friendly Bring Your Own Pen Available in Winter Limited Hours Listed on OCNA Only Stealth Required 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

This cache can be a stand alone cache or part of the planetary trail that I have created over the years. You will be seeking the marker for the planet Pluto.

The B&A Trail is a park and is open from dawn to dusk (notice the limited hour attribute). Wink

The B&A Trail is about 14 miles long and paved with asphalt. It parallels MD Route 2 most of its length. There is a connector at the northern end to put you on the BWI Trail which circles BWI Airport. The B&A Trail is a very popular trail for walkers, runners, inline skating and bicycling. I walk/run a portion of it for exercise starting at the Marley Station Mall in Glen Burnie.

Parking is available very near the cache location. Remember to bring a camera or something to write with.

You will find the cache just a few feet off of the trail. If you look to the west of the planet marker, you should see a very intersting, very tall sculpture. It is next to the parking lot. Notice Pluto at about 5 o'clock on the outer ring.

You must physically visit this location to take credit for this cache.

The confimation code is at the bottom of the BIT cache itself. Please leave it the way you found it. Thanks!

1 17 August 2014 DudleyGrunt Found it

My last stop on my tour of the solar system (as it stands, now)!  Appropriately enough, it is Pluto.  Somehow, I missed it on my first look at the correct hiding spot - probably because of the angle I was coming from.  Looked around at some other possiblities and then came back and actually saw it.

My tour...

The Sun - 03/03/2012 - Sol
Mercury - Mission TBD?
Venus -Mission TBD?
Earth - 07/04/2012 - Third Rock From the Sun
Mars - 08/17/2014 - War of the Worlds
Jupiter - 08/15/2014 - One Large Red Dot
Saturn - 03/03/2012 - One Large Gas Bubble
Uranus - 08/15/2014 - Enough with the jokes!
Neptune - 08/17/2014 - The new last one?
Pluto - 08/17/2014 - Not the dog!

Because of the varying orbits, it is not generally feasible to visit the planets (and drawf planets) in order of their distance from the Sun.

Hopefully, the future will bring stops at the remaining inner planets and perhaps other solar system features such as the asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
