BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. - Rick and Rory Sanders only had small images of doors, windows and steeples when they set out on a scavenger hunt Sunday afternoon. Two hours later, they returned to the event's headquarters having found all 20 sites and feeling fairly confident. Then, the father-and-son duo learned that another team beat them by 45 minutes. "We thought we did quite well in two hours," Rick Sanders said. Timing didn't matter too much in the inaugural scavenger hunt held as part of Mountain Top Heritage Days.

SHARPSBURG -- Which of the following was not essential gear for a Confederate soldier: a canteen, a cotton blanket, a toothbrush or a housewife? The answer -- and it's not the obvious one -- is just one of the many bits of Civil War trivia motorcycle riders picked up Sunday as they cruised between monuments and markers on a Ride to Raise the Roof scavenger hunt to benefit Habitat for Humanity's Women Build program. The event also featured a car show at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center on Sharpsburg Pike open to antique cars, classic cars, street rods and motorcycles.

scottb@herald-mail.com Vendors said more people than usual were at the City Farmers Market on Saturday, with some participating in an annual scavenger hunt. Scavengers had to try to find six pumpkins with a picture attached to them, events coordinator Susie Savagni said. The pumpkins were scattered throughout the market at vendors' booths. Last year shoppers hunted for scarecrows, Savagni said. Savagni said the purpose of the scavenger hunt is twofold - to draw people who have not been to the Farmers Market before and to get those who come just for a particular vendor or two to check out all of the vendors.

Passers-by of the bridge over Hamilton Run near Northern Middle School on Saturday morning might have been reminded of the fairy tale “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” Repeatedly, pairs and small groups of people approached the bridge with great care and caution. Most crossed over the bridge, then ventured guardedly to the swampy banks beneath. As it turned out, they were not looking out for a greedy troll who might gobble them up, but for a paper sign indicating a checkpoint.
